These blanched Australian-grown almonds are crunchy with a smooth texture. Their sweet, crisp and plump kernels give them a superior flavour and make them so versatile.
Almonds contain an array of nutrients that have outstanding health benefits, particularly for your heart. They are a good source of Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, and many other beneficial nutrients such as magnesium, copper, manganese and calcium, which is vital for optimal bone health. Almonds also contain high quantities of iron and zinc, which are essential for energy production and normal bodily function.
Blanched whole almonds are ready to eat and add to recipes as is. Alternatively lightly toast them in a dry pan, on low heat, to add extra colour and toasty flavour. They can be easily chopped or diced, or ground for fresh Almond Meal.
Almonds are great in muesli and granola, or roughly chop and sprinkle them over porridge or yoghurt. A ready to eat snack, they are a delicious ingredient in trail mixes – with seeds and dried fruit. These almonds are conveniently pre-blanched and ready to add to home-baked goods. Use them in muesli bars, seed and nut bread, biscuits, muffins and fruit cake recipes.
They are a traditional decoration for festive cakes. Toasted blanched almonds are a perfect crunchy topping for banana splits, ice cream sundaes, puddings, salads, stir-fries and hotpots.
