As we now enter our first week of summer the nuts are really enjoying the sunshine and heat. The outer shell called the “Hull" is becoming very dry and is beginning to crack open. Underneath we will begin to see the almond shell that protects and keeps the fruit safe and clean.
We are looking for your favorite summer recipe that contains our delicious almonds. Please send your recipe along with a photo to Jennifer@myhusbandsnuts.com.
We will post and try all the recipes.
The Farmer himself will select the winner.
Winner will receive $100.00 in My Husband’s Nuts. Contest ends August 31st.
Get creative and please be sure to try all our flavors!

Eating about 23 almonds a day is an easy way to incorporate many crucial nutrients into your diet. Almonds are rich in vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Additionally, almonds are a significant source of protein and fiber, while being naturally low in sugar. One 23-almond serving packs 13 grams of healthy unsaturated fats, 1 gram of saturated fat and no cholesterol or salt. Of all tree nuts, almonds rank highest in protein, fiber, calcium, vitamin E, riboflavin and niacin content by weight. There are 160 calories in 23 almonds. While many of these calories come from fat, it is primarily the healthy unsaturated fats and not the unhealthy saturated kind.
