Almonds
There are two main types of almond, sweet and bitter. The bitter variety is not readily available and should be used in very small quantities. Sweet almonds tend to come from Spain or California, however those from Jordan are highly esteemed.
In Spain, almonds are used to make a white version of gazpacho served with grapes, as well as delicious milk drinks. Ground and flaked almonds are excellent in cakes, biscuits and desserts and can be used as part of a crumb coating for fish.
