So, what is amandes amère?

Amandes amère are bitter almonds, which come from a specific variety of almond trees known as Prunus dulcis var. amara. Unlike sweet almonds that are commonly used in baking and cooking, bitter almonds contain a compound called amygdalin that breaks down into toxic cyanide when ingested or processed. However, they can be used in small quantities to add a distinct almond flavor to dishes like marzipan, nougat, and liqueurs. Bitter almonds are also popular in traditional medicine and cosmetics for their purported health and beauty benefits.
