How to Make Blanched Almonds • How to


  1. In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring water to a boil and then drop in almonds; blanch for 45 to 50 seconds.
  2. Remove from the heat and drain them in a colander. Rinse the almonds thoroughly under cold water to stop the cooking process.
  3. When this is done, peel off the skins by gently squeezing them between your thumb and index finger.
  4. Place skinless blanched almonds onto a single layer of paper towels to allow them to dry for a few hours. Proceed with the recipe or place them in an airtight container in a cool, dry spot or refrigerate them for up to 3 months.
