I picked up a bag of Roasted Marcona Almonds with Rosemary from Trader Joe’s and can’t stop eating them! They’re a delightful afternoon snack or would be perfect with wine or beer.
What are Marcona almonds? They’re only grown on the Mediterranean coast of Spain and have a light and crunchy texture almost like a macadamia nut.
If you can’t pick these up at your local Trader Joe’s try this recipe from The Foodista blog.

- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spread out a single layer of Marcona almonds.
- Drizzle lightly with extra virgin olive oil then toss together with about 1 tablespoon of minced fresh rosemary.
- Roast almonds until they start to turn a slightly darker brown color. Remove from the oven and toss generously with coarsely ground or flaky sea salt. Serve warm.
- Store leftovers back in the freezer in a covered container. To serve again, just reheat in the microwave and add a little more salt.
