Avola Almonds Spread from Sicily – Artisan Made – 7 oz jarred
Giannetti Artisans’s Avola Almonds Spread is an excellent delight for those of you with a sweet tooth!
Our Almond spread is just as delicious as our Sicilian Pistachio Spread made with the very exclusive Avola almonds.
Through the years Avola almonds obtained their fame through the Italian confetti production! In fact, who of us have not crunched on a white confetti at a traditional Italian wedding?!?
What makes them so exclusive is the fact that they are incredibly sweet. The particular “Pizzuta” variety is used for our spread. The name comes from its elongated and sharp shape. Interestingly, the Sicilians consider the Pizzuta variety “the queen of almonds”. Above all selected by the high quality pastry industry.
The shell is hard and smooth with a pointed end. In addition, the seed is large and flat with a rough surface and most importantly, it has a rich flavor and delicate notes at the same time.
As a matter of fact, the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity has elected this almond as a presidium.
Now you can enjoy it in a delicious Almond Spread perfect for snacking or on a nice slice of bread at breakfast!
