What to do with almonds
There is a bunch of things you can do with with almonds, you can eat them, raw or toasted, use them as a gluten free flour, you can make almond milk, and so much more. I have heard it said that a handful of almonds a day with may you a healthier person. They taste great so why not try them for your self.
Grind almonds, toasted or untoasted, and replace some or all of the flour in your recipe.
How to make almond milk
1 cup almonds soaked in water overnight
4 Medjool dates
1 t. vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean
Combine 4 cups of water, almonds, dates, and vanilla extract in blender (if using a vanilla bean, wait to use it).
Blend until almonds are well blended and mixture looks milky.
Pour through a cheese cloth lined strainer into a 1 quart canning jar or other milk holding device.
You will want a big enough piece of cheese cloth that you can gather together and squeeze out the last drops of milk. If using a vanilla bean, scrape out the seeds and mix in now.
Put it in the fridge to cool and shake well before drinking. Thatís it!
The left over vanilla beans, if you use them, you can put into your sugar bowl to make vanilla sugar.
