How nice to find a food that is as extraordinarily tasty as it is healthful! Since their introduction to America, Marcona almonds are a runaway favorite among food lovers.
They are smooth and crunchy with an incomparably sweet delicate taste -- quite a different flavor than their American cousins. Our Marcona almonds are size 16+ - the largest grade produced in the world. These almonds are lightly sautéed in extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled with salt and then sealed in a jar for freshness.
The supply of Marcona almonds is limited, since, until recently, Spain was the sole source in the world.
Marconas are a delicate strain of almond since the trees are early bloomers, making the blossoms especially vulnerable to early spring frosts.
The groves are found along the Mediterranean coasts of Spain -- from the southern coast of Málaga, proceeding east up the coast to Tarragona.
You may be familiar with almonds in the United States which are contained in light brown, porous shells. The Spanish Marcona almonds are a different variety that has a protective hard shell that resists insects. For this reason they may be grown naturally with no need for herbicides.
Almonds are one of the healthiest snacks. They are dense with healthy nutrients. A handful of Marcona almonds is overflowing with healthy attributes.
Their high content of cholesterol fighting mono unsaturated oil makes them even healthier. A recent study showed that when people eat roughly a handful of almonds a day, they lowered their LDL cholesterol by 3%!
Note: the design on the package you receive may differ from the design shown in the photo.
Las almendras de Marcona son suaves y jugosas con un gusto delicado incomparablemente dulce; un sabor bastante diferente que el de sus primas americanas. Y nuestras marconas son de tamaño 16+, que es el grado más grande que se produce en le mundo. Estas almendras se sofríen en aceite, se les echa sal gorda y se envasan en un tarro para mantenerlas frescas.
Hay una producción muy limitada de almendras de Marcona, porque España es la única fuente de estas almendras en el mundo. Además, los árboles florecen pronto, lo que les hace vulnerables a heladas primaverales. Se cultivan a lo largo de las costas mediterráneas de España: desde la costa sur de Málaga, subiendo al Este hacia la costa de Tarragona. Puede que haya visto las almendras de conchas marrones porosas y ligeras.
Estas almendras de Marcona tienen una concha dura que les protege y es resistente ante insectos, así que se pueden plantar naturalmente sin necesidad de herbicidas. Las almendras son de las cosas de picar más sanas. Su densidad nutricional es tan alta que una porción pequeña proporciona nutrientes sustanciales. También tienen un alto contenido de aceite monosaturado, que combate el colesterol. Un estudio reciente comprobó que cuando se come un puñado de almendras al día, los participantes bajaron el colesterol un 3%.
