  • This may seem like a dumb question about Almond flour...

    ..but it's just ground up almonds yes? So technically i could make it myself?
    I can find it in ONE deli (in my small town, I could drive into Vancouver city but i'd rather not) here but it's insanely pricey...cheaper to buy bulk almonds and grind it myself, if that's all it is?

    Yup, as I understand it, it is just ground up almonds.

      The challenge with making it yourself, as I understand it, is finding that happy place so that you grind it into flour without grinding it into almond butter. Although I suppose ending up with almond butter wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

        I don't mind that, hahah. I'm buying a new processor and i'm pretty good with stuff like this, it should be ok. If i screw up i'll say i meant to make almond butter. *ahem*

              Some people swear by freezing the almonds first, as they're less likely to turn into butter. Check online shops as they tend to be cheaper than buying from stores.

                  If making it yourself, start with blanched and peeled almonds. If you grind up the almonds with their thin brown peel included, your goods will have a different color and a slightly different texture (still taste good tho!)

                      This is the link that I used a couple of weeks ago when I saw the thread about Rivvin's angry bread for the first time. I used the whole raw almonds with skin and it worked out really well. The almonds were really old though, and might have gone rancid, so I decided to go ahead and buy some new whole almonds and almond flour from NutsOnline The flour is excellent and is a pretty good price, and they shipped really fast. They also threw in a sample of Turkish Figs that were out of this world. They reminded me of eating a Fig Newton. Will probably place another order soon just to get some more of the Turkish Figs.

                        Success! The fruits of my endeavors! I also go to give my new food processor a great test
                        This was from a pound of slivered, blanched almonds.

                          Wow, that's a lot of almond meal Make sure you refrigerate or freeze it, it'll go rancid at room temperature pretty quickly.

                              I order mine from Honeyville. It works out to be about $5/lb.
