Fat Uncle Farms now has green almonds at the farmers market. They are tart, peach-like nuggets that eventually will turn into almonds. Evan likes to eat them with a little olive oil and sea salt. Blogger and pastry chef David Lebovitz has a few ideas here. Here’s how Fat Uncle likes to use them:
Green Almonds With Chili Salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon powdered chili pepper (we like cayenne:)
3 tablespoons light olive oil (try Joelle from the Farmers Market)
1 dozen green almonds,washed
Combine the sugar, salt, and chili in a small serving vessel and mix. Pour the oil into a separate bowl. Dip the green almonds in the oil first, then in the chili-salt mix.
