Almonds the edible seed of the almond tree; technically they are a drupe (like a peach), not a nut. An almond is finger-tip sized, hard and oval-shaped. Use this tag for questions about selecting, identifying, storing, preparing, replacing or cooking with almond or almond derivatives (such as almond oil, almond flour or almond extract) as a star ingredient. Questions about dishes which include almond, but are not focused on almond, should not use this tag.
