Almond flour is used as an alternative to wheat flour, but it also has its advantages: a higher protein content, gluten-free and taste and aroma.

The preparation of almond meal at home is a relatively easy and enjoyable activity. To obtain the white flour, remove the peel, while the almonds are blanched for 1-2 minutes in an uncoated bowl or are poured in hot water and allowed to cool down to cool. The kite easily slips between the fingers. Almonds are dried with a cloth and dried for 20-30 minutes at 50-60C or until they become brittle and brittle.
Dried almonds are placed in a blender or coffee grinder and ground to obtain a powdery mass. It takes about 30-60 seconds. It should be known that very long grinding makes the flour into a sticking mass. Flour is stored in a well-closed receptacle in a refrigerator. Almond meal quickly rages if kept outdoors or stored at room temperature.
