Product: Raw, Peeled Sicilian Sweet Almonds
Pariani, the purveyors of D.O.P. Hazelnut products from Piedmont, have traveled to the south of Italy to bring us these prized Sicilian Noto Romana Almonds. The Noto Romana variety of almond hails from the southeastern corner of Sicily, near the town of Noto.
Intense and sweet, these peeled, raw almonds make delicious almond paste and marzipan, much like that you'll find all over Sicily. Although their texture is dry and dense (they are not as oily as other varieties), these Sicilian almonds intensify when roasted and are great for baking things such as almond croissants. Crush or chop Pariani's Noto Romana Almonds and use as a topping for yogurt, ice cream sundaes or granita.
