#Almond Addiction

Groves of pale pink blossom decorate the area. The pink petals arrive before the leaves, giving a delicate look to the trees. Some farmers use irrigation to give the trees a head start. So many recipes benefit from almonds. Ground almonds for cakes, Italian macaroon biscuits and marzipan, blanched almonds for large fruit and nut cakes plus sliced almonds for a pilaf or Indian recipes like Biryani.

Ooops, looks like they have been eaten!
