View Full Version : thumbs up to this source of unpasteurized almonds
10-12-2007, 02:37 PM
for those of you who are looking for unpasteurized almonds (probably everyone ;) ), just wanted to say i ordered 10 lb of almonds that are said to be unpasteurized from D and S ranches, and I received them quickly, within 3 days. as far as determining whether the company is honest in saying they are unpasteurized, the almonds i received seem alike to the ones i have always purchased at the co-op, which were packaged in the same way (in bulk in unsealed plastic in a cardboard box) and i assumed were unpasteurized. the almonds i just got fortunately have nothing in common with the "raw" ones i got from trader joes, which tasted sort of cooked, so my best guess would be that they are really not pasteurized, though i cant say for sure. so anyway, id say d and s ranches gets a thumbs up.

I bought some pecans and walnuts from D & S also. They come vacuum sealed and are incredible fresh. :p
