At Tropical Sun, we live by the motto: ‘Variety is the spice of life’. Our journey started in 1996 when we began importing a few specialist ingredients and daily essentials for the UK’s thriving ethnic communities.
As word spread, we began receiving requests for specific items from homelands far-afield: Spices, oils, drinks and snacks that helped people stay connected to their cultures. We love that the food helps to bring Families & Communities together.
Almond Essence is an ideal flavour complement for vanilla, chocolate, maple or butterscotch. This authentically nutty store-cupboard staple is perfect for using in cakes or tarts or but is also gorgeous when added to pastries and fruit dishes. It’s a pure, concentrated essence with deep, complex flavours that will give your sweet treats the edge. Try pairing it with peaches, pistachios or cherries for something deliciously different.
For thousands of years, gourmands have prized almond essence for its sumptuous, full-bodies flavour. It’s said that the Egyptians used to flavour their breads with almond oils whilst Cleopatra was so enamoured with almonds that she regularly bathed in their milk. More recently, since the 1500s almonds have become a mainstay ingredient in cookies, jams, cakes and liqueurs, and they continue to be a widely used and popular ingredient to this day.
As well as a baking addition, almond essence can be used in fruit dishes, salad dressings and sauces, to flavour drinks and even to be added to pumpkin or banana breads to increase the depth of flavour.
