|1¼||cup of almonds|
|1.||To blanch almonds, place them in boiling water for about 1 min. Drain & immediately place them in ice-cold water to stop further cooking. Peel the almonds.|
|2.||Pre-heat the oven to 180 C. Toast almonds for 8-10 mins or until golden brown & fragrant. Allow them to cool. Grind into coarse powder.|
Be careful while grinding the almonds, just coarsely ground is also good. If you ground too much, then almonds will release natural oil giving you almond butter.
