ALMOND

The almond is a small delicious tree, growing 4-10 meters in height, with a trunk of up to 30 centimeters in diameter. The young brushwood is green at first, becoming purplish where exposed to sunlight, then grey in the second year. Almonds begin bearing an economic crop in the third year after planting. Trees reach full bearing five to six years after planting. The fruit is mature in the autumn, 7 to 8 months after flowering. The almond is a native to the Mediterranean climate region of the Middle-East, eastward as far to the Indus. While the almond is often eaten on its own, raw or toasted, it is also a component of various dishes. Almonds are available in many forms, such as whole, sliced, and as almond butter, almond milk and almond oil. These variations can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. Sweet almonds can be sprinkled over desserts, particularly ice cream based dishes. Sweet almonds are used in marzipan, nougat, many pastries, cookies (including French macaroons), cakes and other sweets and desserts. They are also used to make almond butter, a spread similar to peanut butter. The fruit is somewhat sour, but is a popular snack in parts of the Middle East, eaten dipped in salt to balance the sour taste. In Iran, green almonds are dipped in sea salt and eaten as snacks on street markets; they are called Chaqalebâdam. Also sweet almonds are used to prepare a special food for babies. The almond oil is used to remove black spots and black marks on the skin. Found in places like Iran, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Turkey, Syria and Jordan, almond is a very nutritious nut. It is a rich source of vitamin E, Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron and Magnesium.
