  • 3 additional cups filtered water

Directions

  • Soak almonds overnight
  • Strain and discard the water used for soaking
  • The skins of the nuts should peel off easily at this point (If they do not peel off, then place them in a small saucepan on the stovetop, add water to cover and simmer for about 5 minutes.  This will release the skins for you.)
