So, what is bittere amandelen?

Bittere amandelen, also known as bitter almonds, are small, oval-shaped nuts with a unique and intense flavor. Unlike sweet almonds, which are commonly consumed as a snack or used in baked goods, bitter almonds contain a naturally occurring chemical called amygdalin, which can be toxic if ingested in large amounts. Despite this, they are still used in traditional recipes for their distinct bitter taste, particularly in Italian and Middle Eastern cuisine. In small amounts, bittere amandelen can add depth and complexity to dishes like marzipan, amaretto liqueur, and almond-based sauces.
