Largueta almonds are the slender, lower-fat cousins of the famous Marcona almond. Although often overshadowed by this relationship, many connoisseurs prize Largueta almonds for their heightened almond flavor and added crunchiness.
Esther Tusal's almonds are the ultimate in old style Spanish quality. In London they earned the coveted GREAT TASTE AWARDS (London) 2005: Silver Award for 2005 Caramelized Almonds.
Using her grandmother's recipe, Esther pan toasts small batches of fresh, locally grown almonds in high quality extra virgin olive oil and lightly coats them with caramel. She uses a minimal amount of sugar to achieve the best flavor, keeping the health conscious consumer's interest in mind. Tusal's collection of gourmet nuts is everything you'd expect from Spain.
