Pickled Plum-Tangerine Almonds

Whole roasted natural almonds are lightly coated in whipped egg whites flavored with light brown sugar, the sweet-citrusy taste of tangerine and the compliment of pickled plum puree with a touch of java plum powder - all baked to a flavorsome crunch for everyday snacking. The intriguing, natural purple color of the flavored almonds drives consumer interest. Developed by Chef Rob Corliss of ATE on behalf of the Almond Board of California

  • 8 oz Natural almonds, whole roasted
