Sicilian almonds have a depth of flavor like no other almond. They’re bursting with an intense taste and some slight bitter notes. Their rich aromas are powerful in the raw almond, but get shockingly explosive after a slight roasting. Add a sprinkle of Trapani sea salt and you’ll have the quintessential Sicilian crunchy snack for all your aperitivo, cheese spreads, and dinner parties.
