This week, a new flavor of Marcona almonds will be available in The DLM Cheese Shop and it’s right in time for the holidays — truffle! Every one that is familiar with Marcona almonds already know how good they are. If you aren’t familiar – Marcona Almonds, also sometimes referred to as the Queen of Almonds, are imported from Spain. They have a distinctive shape that are flatter, rounder, and a little sweeter than the Californian variety. First they are blanched, than roasted in olive oil, and finished with a good dosing of sea salt resulting in a crispy texture that is just plain delicious.
A couple of years ago we tossed them in our blend of Herbes de Provence and knew we had a hit on our hands. Truffle flavored Marcona almonds are here just in time for the holidays! They’re so perfect as-is with a glass of Champagne. Or, pile a handful onto a charcuterie platter or as a pairing with a wedge of your favorite cheese. Stop by and try our newest addition to the lineup.
