They day in the life of a Raw Almond

I purchased a pound of raw almonds. All my friends keep telling me raw are the best and to soak them before eating. So that is what I did... last night I soaked my almonds and this morning a friend posted a recipe for almond milk. I decided I would dry some and make milk with the rest.

These are my nuts for drying. 

Blend a cup of soaked raw almonds and 4 cups of water in your blender.

Use a cheese cloth to strain your milk .

You will end up with this wonderful paste!

I used a spoon to help push through the milk and then skim the paste off the top. 

And here is your final product ! 

Later today I am going to make some cookies with my almond paste :)
