Make your own Note on blanched almonds: it?s very important that the almonds you use in this recipe are blanched. You don?t want the brown skins in the almond paste. Unfortunately, the cheapest way to buy almonds is at Sams Club or Costco and those bags are unblanched. To blanch almonds yourself is easy. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Put the almond into the boiling water and let them boil for 2 or 3 minutes. Then strain the boiling water off the almond and dump them into a bowl of cold water. In a couple of minutes, you?ll be able to slide the skins right off the almonds. Let the blanched almonds dry a little before you make almond paste with them.
