Raw Almonds FAQ
When cooking with raw almonds, people often overlook their versatility and the added depth of flavor that toasting can bring out. A common mistake is not removing the brown skin of the almonds; although this skin is edible and filled with nutrients, some find it bitter and prefer to remove it, particularly when used in baking. To do so, blanch the almonds by boiling them in water for 1-2 minutes, then rinse in cold water to easily peel off the skin. To get the most out of your almonds, consider their great utility in creating dairy substitutes like almond milk, almond flour, or almond butter. Another helpful tip is to pulse raw almonds in a food processor and use as a gluten-free alternative to bread crumbs. Such little-known hacks can truly elevate your cooking. Finally, remember that although raw almonds are more natural and nutritious, roasting them can further enhance their taste and texture.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does raw almond expire?
Raw almonds can last for a quite long period. Unopened, they can stay fresh for about 2 years from the production date if stored correctly. If the seal has been opened, a reduction in their lifespan is inevitable but they should be good for up to 1 year. Home refrigeration can extend this period to 2 years, while freezing can keep them good for up to 4 years.
How do you tell if raw almond is bad?
To tell if raw almonds have turned bad, use your senses of smell and sight. Fresh almonds have a sweet, nutty aroma, so if they give off a sour or rotten smell, they're probably spoiled. Also, if they look moldy or discolored, this is a clear sign of spoilage. In term of taste, if they have a bitter or sour taste, they're likely bad.
Tips for storing raw almond to extend shelf life
• Store raw almonds in a cool, dark place away from sunlight to keep them fresher for longer. • Sealed containers or zip-lock bags are perfect for storing almonds. Make sure to squeeze out as much air as possible before sealing. • Refrigerating almonds can increase their shelf life significantly. If you plan to use your almonds within a month, you can keep them in your pantry, but for longer storage, the fridge is best. • If you have a large quantity of almonds and want to store them for more than 2 years, freezing is an excellent option. Ensure they are well-packaged in airtight containers or freezer-friendly bags.
