The most flavorsome almonds are bitter almonds , as opposed to “sweet” almonds. They have the strongest scent and are the most popular in many countries.

But there is one problem: they are full of cyanide. Before consumption, bitter almonds must be processed to remove the poison.

Despite this requirement, some countries make the sale of bitter almonds illegal. New Zealand regretfully is one of them.

As an alternative, you can use the pip from an apricot stone which has a similar flavor and poison content. Heating destroys the poison.

In fact, you may not know that it is now illegal in the USA to sell raw almonds – all almonds sold are now heat-treated to remove traces of poison and bacteria.
