These are nonpareil supreme almonds, which are considered the finest, most delicious almonds. Blanched means that the brown skins are removed with hot water. They are natural, not roasted, so are ready for your recipe. They are normally packaged in one pound cello bags to make it easy for you to store them in the refrigerator or freezer.
Almonds should be stored in the refrigerator or other cool places at a temperature below 35F.
Almonds freeze well if wrapped in a moisture/vapor-proof material or placed in an airtight container.

Pistachios have high nutritional value and can be considered a healthy snack if you consume them in moderation.
