Not sure about Baltimore, but in my area (San Francisco Bay Area), you would often find green almonds (when in season) at Middle Eastern markets. I think it also helps that I'm in a state that grows almonds. But you never know how resourceful store owners are in finding sources, especially if there is demand from their customers.

And thanks to you, Imane! It's always fun to explore a new ingredient, especially with some guidance from a cook who knows how to use it.

Cookbookchick, I just eat them as a snack dipped in some salt this is how we eat them in Lebanon. You can also slice them and add them in a green salad, you can use them as a little topping over a fish like tilapia or any fish you like just fry them a little but dont let them loose their crunchiness. The best way for me is as a snack or over a salad... I hope I was of a help.

Imane, what do you do with green almonds? I have seen them at Fairway in New York City but don't know how to eat them.

If you add them to a salad dont add a different kind of nuts.. they have a very subtile delicate taste. Good luck
