Our family takes many adventurous hikes in the Selquirk mountain range surrounding our summer lake cabin. These nuts never tasted better than when we enjoyed them together at the peak of an amazing hike. Almonds are extremely nutritious, and, when dressed up with a wonderful blend of spices, they go from ordinary to extra-ordinary! —Gina Myers, Spokane, Washington
