Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Production: directly imported from a family farm in Sicily, Italy, are fully unpasteurized raw and non-GMO.
Qualities: Almonds are a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins like B2, biotin, and E as well as many essential minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, copper, and zinc. They are also rich in dietary fiber and mono and polyunsaturated fats. Typical of many nuts and seeds, almonds contain phytosterols which have been associated with cholesterol-lowering properties.
Results from a recent study  showed evidence that nut consumption (about 20 almonds) may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, cardiovascular disease, total cancer, and all-cause mortality, and possibly mortality from diabetes, respiratory disease, and infectious disease.
Common Use: Almonds are commonly enjoyed on their own as a healthy snack, sprinkled over salads or desserts, and used in many culinary dishes both savory or sweet. They come in many forms such raw or toasted, blanched & sliced or diced, as flour or butter, or enjoyed coated in chocolate or Tamari. You can also easily make your own almond milk (blend with water, a couple of dates, a bit of vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Then strain through a sprout bag or muslin cloth and enjoy).
Storage: to preserve freshness, keep refrigerated in a sealed container. Temperatures for long-term storage are −3 to 0 °C (27 to 32 °F) and low humidity

They provide an amazing boost in Vitamin E and K, important minerals and dietary fibre ensuring, that the younger, very active members of our family and the older ones alike, maintain strong and healthy bones.
I love these almonds which I use to make almond milk. I was advised that these almonds might be slightly bitter and that they probably wouldn't be great for making almond milk, but because I wanted both raw and organic almonds, I decided to take a chance. I'm so glad I did because they make delicious almond milk with a definite "almond" flavour. There is a slight bitterness but that pairs well with my morning coffee.
