Ever seen a naked almond? I had to laugh because Bob and I have been watching the TV series, Naked & Afraid. A survival show were two people attempt to spend 21 days in harsh (putting it mildly) conditions… naked. They are allowed one survival tool.
Anyway, as I was popping the skins off of the almonds and occasionally one would shoot off into the distance. Bob asked just what the heck I was doing as one skid along side him… I told him, “Sorry, my almonds are naked and afraid!” hehe I hope you can follow my twisted sense of humor.
They are beautiful and creamy in color. It isn’t always necessary to undress your almonds but there are times that it is called for. If you want to make a nut cheese that is blond in color or if you want to make a cookie that is blond in color, these are some possibilities.
This process is rather easy to do and rather therapeutic. Also, the skins have been known to cause digestion discomfort. So, if you find almonds hard to digest, take them one step further by removing the skins and see if it makes a difference.
