Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Ya just put on some music or a book on tape and start squeezing those little buggers. It really goes fast actually. Sort of makes me think of folks sitting on the porch shelling peas or shucking corn. Very pleasant, actually. Good food is slow food.

You're preventing the phytates from blocking mineral absorption when you take off the skins. I grew up w/lima bean soup for dinner (w/a large ham hock - very delish!), and I've soaked the lima beans and taken off the skins before. I swore off legumes after that - lol. You're a patient person to take off the skins of almonds, if it's anything like taking off those lima bean skins.

Boy, that does sound good but nutrition wise??? Don't think I'll try that little treat.

Many moons ago dear old friends gave us deep fried almonds as a Christmas treat- the recipe was to pour hot water over raw almonds, pop the skin off as Annie describes, throw them into hot oil in a deep fryer until they began to brown, take them out and dry on paper towels after sprinkling with a wee bit of sea salt. What a treat and we had no idea about nutrition in those days! Guess where I am going back to... emoticon

Yeah... there's something in the skins that keep our stomachs from digesting the nutrients properly...
I have peeled many almonds. lol But I haven't tried dehydrating them. Will have to do that one day...

I've just read in so many places about the nutritional advantages of soaking, de-skinning and drying at low temp. I just decided to finally do something about it. Even the skin is hard on our intestines (I've read) And the soaking (sprouting) releases a lot of nutrients and neutralizes enzyme inhibitors. I removed the skins quite easily AFTER they were soaked. They just slip off by rolling between thumb and forefinger and then pinching a little. The beautiful white almond just flies out!
Here's a website that explains it all pretty well if you're interested

oaking-nuts.html

I left my almonds in the dehydrator for 24 hours and they came out beautifully crispy and so sweet--so much better than the roasting I have been doing for so long. And so much better for us. My stupid oven doesn't go any lower than 170 degrees F. So I'm glad I have the dehydrator. I like knowing that I am preserving all those little enzyme guys which are so necessary for good digestion.

Gosh, I wonder how an almond butter would turn out using these beauties.

I dry mine in the oven - looove how crispy they get! (though I'm lazy and leave the skins on. :)

I just did some and tossed them with a bit of salt while they were still moist. Told my hubby I didn't need him any more! LOL!

I finally got around to soaking, de-skinning and drying some almonds and to make a long story short I'll never go back to eating them any other way. Absolutely delicious! Hubby gives them a big thumbs up. And I can hardly keep my hands off them. I'm going to soak some pumpkin seeds and hazelnuts tonight before bed and dry them tomorrow. I already have some more almonds in the dryer going today!

I see a grain-free granola developing in my near future. My coconut chips should be arriving tomorrow from the co-op.
