Welcome to Pacific Gourmet!
Marcona almonds, the ????Queen of Almonds,???????? are imported from Spain. They are shorter, rounder, softer, and sweeter than the California variety. These blanched Marcona almonds are roasted in olive oil and then sprinkled with sea salt, offering a delicious taste.
Use Marcona almonds in salads, with cheeses, alongside fruit, and in desserts. The Spanish use marcona almonds in tapas and treats like turron, a traditional nougat candy. The enjoyable flavor, and smooth, delicate texture of these unique almonds creates a wonderful snack in itself.
Casa Pons is the pre-eminent oil producer in Catalunya. Eduard Pons has done something no one else has yet been able to successfully accomplish. He has devised a method to bring us fresh, green “new” olive oil the year round. The aceite novella is pressed from first harvest arbequina olives in September and blast frozen into blocks. The blocks are defrosted just prior to shipping throughout the year. Ahí está! Vibrant green olive oil with the fresh grassy taste of the best, new harvest oil.
