Almond- Native to Iran and Western Asia. Almonds come from the almond tree, and the seeds are the nuts that we eat.
Almond trees were among one of the earliest domesticated fruit trees. The earliest record was the fruit of the almond tree that was found in the tomb of Egyptian pharaoh King “Tut” Tutankhamun. Almonds are a kitchen pantry staple, and are often eaten raw.
They can also be used in baking, with meat, poultry and vegetables among a great variety of other dishes of your liking.
Almonds may be sweet tasting or bitter, depending on the tree.
