A springtime favourite, these won't cost you an almond a leg!

Almonds are a seed, not a true nut. In fact almonds are related to stone fruit - peaches, cherries, apricots, and more! That's why some people with nut allergies can have almonds with no allergic reactions. Fresh green almonds are simply young almonds that haven't matured into the hardened almond pulp - the almond as we know it. With a short season in spring, they are a mild, refreshing treat on a warm afternoon!

People often like to have recipes for everything but I think young almonds are best eaten as just themselves. The whole fruit is edible - including the outer shell with a peach-like fuzz, but sometimes usually I crack it open and just eat the delicate almond inside.
