Me, neither! emoticon

They still tasted like almonds, but had a "creamier" texture. If you Google 'em (images) you'll see that if they're young enough, they're almost a gel like this: 4.bp.blogspot.com/-sgPwVTTEf_U/T7J40

Oopsie-- emoticon I fixed it.

I'd never even seen green almonds, either. I had to ask the cashier what they were! You just take the green part off, as the shell hasn't developed yet.

I have never tried green almonds. They are in season right now so I guess now is the time. You did not mention when to add the almonds to your recipe.
