Question re homemade almond paste....Please...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I want to try the recipe by Jacques Torres for almond paste.  The recipe calls for blanched slivered almonds.  I bought slivered amonds today but the label says "raw slivered almonds".  There is no skin.  Do I still need to blanch them?  thank you so much.  Gearing up for my holiday baking.....:-)

I think they will be fine - normally you only blanch them to remove the skin.

Here is another recipe if you are interested.
