One of our favorite places in any supermarket is the baking isle. The choice of ingredients just waiting to be combined into freshly baked goodies is enough to make even the hesitant baker tingle with excitement. Besides the raw ingredients available for those die hard bakers who delight in making things from scratch, we quite like the many convenience products that save time but deliver impressive results. One time saving brand we especially recommend are Diamond nuts. Although Diamond nuts can be purchased still in the shell, we personally prefer to leave the nut shelling up to the professionals. (Most nuts we’ve tried to shell ended up as mangled, minced nuts. And have you ever tried to shell a macadamia nut? It’s one of the most challenging nuts for sure.) Diamond nuts are of superior quality and taste and can be purchased as sliced, slivered, or chopped nuts. The varieties to choose from include pecans, walnuts, almonds, macadamias, pine nuts, Brazil nuts, peanuts, and hazelnuts. Smart coupon users will collect and use Diamond coupons so convenient shelled Diamond nuts can more affordably included to your home baking stash.
Nuts make the perfect topping for salads, cereal and yogurt. They also make a crunchy coating for poultry and fish. New on the scene are Diamond Nut Toppings. Convenience once again comes into play with these already glazed walnuts and pecans that will liven up salads, desserts, and main dishes. Diamond foods also offers a wonderful, healthy snack line marketed under the name of Emerald. Emerald nut snacks are rich with vitamins, minerals, protein and the good fat bodies need. Twenty-three varieties of trail mix, glazed nuts, roasted, smoked, and flavored nuts are waiting to energize your day.
