This is the first time I have ever tasted Fresh Green Almonds, I found these yesterday at the halal Market in Dearborn Heights. I was looking at them and a older gentleman said, "Try One... Go ahead and Try one" I was pretty curious so I tried one and it was pretty cool! waaaay different from what I expected. They didn't taste like an almond at all. It was more like eating a bitter red plum or a really firm crunchy peach(which I like.)

So the older man told me how he enjoyed them at home...He said, "When you get home put a little salt in your palm and dip the almond in the salt....DELICIOUS!

Well I tried them that way too! and He was Right, they were very tasty... but, to reserve my good health, My Lord has blessed me with. I choose to eat them without the raw salt.

Health Information on Almonds:

Almonds had been considered too fatty to be a healthy snack, but research has shown that the nuts actually lower blood cholesterol levels. 90 percent of the fats in almonds are unsaturated, and the nuts are high in protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin E, and other antioxidants. Almonds help prevent osteoporosis and they regulate blood pressure.


  1. That reminds me of when I first ate raw peanuts and how much they taste like peas which I love!

    1. Lol! Do you mean like the little round green peas? (Well, I call them sweet peas) But, do you mean those?Because yes, I can see the correlation.
