Almonds are one of the healthiest snacks. Marcona almonds have a high content of cholesterol fighting mono unsaturated oil. A recent study showed that when people eat roughly a handful of almonds a day, they lowered their LDL cholesterol by 3%!
Marcona almonds are a rare treat and were only found in Spain until recently. Marconas are a delicate strain of almond since the trees are early bloomers, making the blossoms especially vulnerable to early spring frosts. The groves are found along the Mediterranean coasts of Spain -- from the southern coast of Málaga, proceeding east up the coast to Tarragona.
You may be familiar with almonds in the United States which are contained in light brown, porous shells. The Spanish Marcona almonds are a different variety that has a protective hard shell that resists insects. For this reason they may be grown naturally with no need for herbicides.

"Oh my goodness! As a native Californian, I almost feel guilty for admitting California almonds are no longer my favorite. THESE marconas sauteed in olive oil are absolutely delicious! A new indulgence...and a healthy one, at that (if I don't gobble the entire jar). These would be perfect for parties...your guests will be delighted! And I don't mean merely fun parties. Consider these for elegant affairs, as well. Very special."

"I love these almonds, and buy them all year. They were sold out for a while, and when I bought them next (May 2012) they were not as good. They are darker and harder than before. How could there be such difference from previous batches???"
