Almonds: Main Image

Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Because of their mild flavor, almonds are used both as a garnish and as an ingredient in a variety of both sweet and savory dishes. Sweetened almond paste, called marzipan, is used to make candies and to decorate cakes. Almonds coated with caramelized sugar are called pralines. Almonds can also be made into almond butter, which is used in the same ways as peanut butter, and can be ground into a powder and made into an almond milk drink.
