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.
thank you so much!!! I thought so but wanted another opinion. Happy Holidays!
