Subject: [RawPortland] Almonds are here
Date: Sunday, September 7, 2008, 10:54 AMHi Everyone,The unpasteurized almonds arrived yesterday. They are fresh and beautiful. If you bought almonds from me last year, bear in mind that the ones I'm selling this year are a different variety. These are the Nonpareils, which are larger, flatter, lighter in color and flavor and tenderer in texture.
Shelled almonds can be stored for up to a year at 32-45 degrees. If you plan to store them for long periods, be sure to double-bag them or place them in a plastic bag and also in a glass or plastic container. This will keep moisture content and nutrient levels intact and freezer odors out.
If you have not yet ordered, it's not too late. They are $10/lb., certified organic, UNpasteurized, UNfumigated, unprocessed in any way.Next weekend I'm tentatively planning to bring whatever orders I have now and will receive in the next week to a central pick up location in Portland. I'll be bringing extra in case people want to sample before they purchase. I will be in touch later with specifics.Please let me know if I can answer any questions.All the best,Nora
