    I saw a demonstration how they strained the nut pulp, then made it into almond flour. Not sure what the exact directions are…

    No need to soak them if you put them in boiling hot water for a minute. Just take them out and when they are cool enough you can pinch each almond and it will come flying out of the skin. This eliminates the need for straining. Although, it does take some time to squeeze every nut. It can be kinda fun. I’m not sure if it wouldn’t be easier to just strain the whole batch at the end. You may try timing both to see which is quicker. Hope this helps.

    Do you know how long this will keep in the refrigerator?

    We don’t have a recipe on this, but many people will put the pulp in their dehydrator to turn it into almond meal or flour. It sounds like we need to do some more research and write a blog post on this.

    it’s important to soak the nuts in salt water for at least 6 to 7 hours to remove the phytic acid in the nuts which binds to minerals in the gut rendering them unabsorable (I think I just made up a new word:). Almond flour is super expensive and the pulp is almond flour waiting to happen. If you don’t have a dehydrator just put the leftover meal in your oven on it’s lowest setting till all of the moisture is gone.
