Fresh green almonds are fuzzy, prune-sized fruits that surround the soft, embryonic alonds. In the middle east they are enjoyed fresh with just a dip of salt. This recipe for hot pickled green almonds is a nice for salads and snacking.
Keep an eye out for Green Almonds to show up at farmer's markets or international stores from about April to June. Snack on them, then make a fabulous Green Almond Syrup.
