Poached Fresh Almonds

Poached Fresh Almonds

Served on bread with honey and cheese. so simple and a great addition to a Mezze platter or with cheese + wine. Chef Rebecca Taylor found these beautiful fresh almonds pods at our stores. This stone fruit is tart and crunchy raw, but when poached, they’re luscious and tender as they pick up the flavor of the infused oil (Tip: If you prefer more of a robust flavor use Extra Virgin Olive Oil!)

Poached Fresh Almonds in garlic + dill oil


2 Cups of Fresh Green Almonds
5 Cups of Oil
2-3 Garlic Cloves Sliced
¼ Cup Dill
Gorgonzola Cheese

Citrus Zest

Raw Honey

Rinse the almonds in water and dry completely. Heat oil in a saucepan and bring it to a light simmer. Add chopped garlic, fresh dill, a pinch of salt, couple pinches of sugar and citrus zest. Let simmer for 30-40 minutes.


Serve over bread with crumbles of Gorgonzola Cheese and Raw Honey. Delicious.
