Blanched almonds are expensive!!! Did you know that you can blanch almonds in your Thermomix!
- Put raw almonds into your mixing bowl, cover with water and cook for 4 min/steaming temp/speed 1/MC on.
- Drain them off and with a gentle rub the skins will just pop off.
Storage would be best in the freezer if planning to keep them for a while, we recommend either baking them in the oven for about half an hour on the lowest setting or using a dehydrator.
If you are wanting to turn your blanched almonds into almond meal, simply add the dried almonds to the mixer bowl and mill at Speed 7 for 10 seconds. If you want a finer flour just mill for an extra second or so.
