Imagine my surprise while browsing through a middle eastern store at finding green almonds. I bought some just to test it out, what does it taste like, what can be done with it.
Aswin saw someone eat the whole thing - the green fuzzy outer hull and all - and almost shouted it out. I didn't believe till I tasted one. It's tart and crisp, and tasted I ate a couple before stopping.
I decided to pickle them to preserve it to keep the fresh spring flavor last a little while longer. It did not disappoint.
1 cup fresh green almonds - chop them in long slices. I made about 3-4 for each almond hull and all.
6-7 cloves of garlic - chopped
1 cup white cooking vinegar
1 cup water
2 tbspoons sugar
2 dry red chillies - torn in pieces
1 tspoon coriander seeds
1/4 tspoon black pepper
