The Largueta is a favorite Spanish almond of ours. A slender cousin of the celebrated Marcona almond, the Largueta is much crunchier and lower in fat.
Esther Tusal's almonds are the ultimate in old style Spanish quality. In London her sugar glazed Largueta almonds earned the coveted GREAT TASTE AWARDS: 2006 Bronze Award.
Our friend Esther roasts these thin, crunchy beauties, and then lightly seasons the Largueta almonds with sea salt. Pure and simple.
Tusal pan toasted almonds are different because Esther uses fresh locally grown Largueta almonds and extra virgin olive oil. She sautés small batches of the long slender Largueta almonds by hand, and then sprinkles them with a pinch of sea salt.
Many discerning gourmets put Largueta almonds in a class with Marcona almonds. They particularly value the heightened almond flavor and added crunchiness.
We hope you enjoy eating Esther's hand-made Largueta almonds as much as we enjoy making them available to you. All of her almond specialties provide quality and are healthy snacks.
