Q’s Key Lime Ginger Almonds

For those familiar with Farmers Markets, there are some real hidden gems. Some of these hidden gems include Ginger, yum.

Saturday found me at the Natick Farmer’s Market. The Market is well attended by vendors and individuals even in November.   I cannot deny it, the attendance surprised me – farms, soda vendors, local meat providers, and gourmet food vendors.

There are two that really interested me – Simpson Spring Soda and Q’s Nuts.  I’ll save Simpson Spring Soda for another day, after all I am a Ginger Fanatic.

I found a tent for Q’s Nuts… if you haven’t heard about them, you have missed out on a killer episode from Phantom Gourmet.  I embedded it here so you can appreciate the coolness of Q’s Nuts.

I saw a few flavors that interested me – Chocolate Cardamon, Rosemary Sea Salt, and Key Lime Ginger Almonds. I know you are thinking … only three? well I was interested in all of them, I just happen to purchase 3 for $10 at the market.

I got home, and stared at the bag.  “Do I want to open it?”

Of course.   I popped open the bag, and ate the one… then another…. then another… The candied coating was hard, not too hard, and flavorful.  The lime ginger combination with almonds tasted great.  As a spiced nut with ginger, I give them a 10 out of 10.

I’m going to have to make a special trip to their Davis Square haunts to see the operation.
