    breezermom's Note:

    Some recipes call for blanched almonds (almonds with their skins removed). This is a quick and easy way to do this, about 5 minutes. Afterward, you can prepare them as you like, whole, halved, or slivered.

      Wow! I will never buy blanched almonds again! I had to soak my almonds twice- the first time I let them sit for a minute, as directed, but the skins were still sticking. So I soaked them again, for about three minutes, and they came right off. Who knows, maybe I had older almonds? But this is a really fast, easy way to get those pesky skins off without paying a fortune to buy them that way. Thanks for the great method!

      This recipe saved me a whole lot of stress. I've had a bag of almonds that i knew i ought to blanch but dreaded the work involved.<br/>Then i found this recipe: At first pass, only a few skinned easily. Then i remembered IngridH's suggestion to soak them a second time. Success!!<br/>I blanched a 3lb bag in much less time than i had planned.<br/>Thank you, breezermom for posting the recipe and thank you, IngridH, for posting your suggestion.
