Jordan Almond

Are Jordan almonds from Jordan?  Nope.  Jordan is a corruption of the french word ‘jardin‘ meaning garden.  The original Jordan almonds were much less refined than the ones we see today.  They used to have just a simple honey coating.  The ‘garden’ part indicated that they were domestic and not wild almonds.
