California is the only state that produces almonds commercially. Seventy percent of the world's supply is grown by 6,000 farmers on almost half a million acres. Almonds are not actually nuts, botanically speaking, but are the seeds of stone fruits, like the pit of a peach. They are rich in protein, calcium and riboflavin. Only a small portion of the fat in almonds is saturated, and the almond's fat content is among the lowest of the nuts. They are a great addition when chopped and sprinkled over steamed or sautéed dark leafy vegetables such as broccoli rabe, spinach or kale. From Party Nuts!
