I wanted to get this done sooner, but I did not have any regular almonds, and because I bought Raw Organic Almonds for special Raw recipes ($8+ per lb vs. $5), I didn't want to use them for blanching and cooking. Well, I bought 1 lb of regular Almonds just for this, and blanched them today. It came out to about 3 cups, and I have them dehydrating in my oven right now. So, I will post part 3 once they are dry and I can get to it! Plus, expect pictures.
