    This is so useful. Not only is this an economical option, it is also a space saving option. I can now just purchase almonds with skin and prepare them as I need them. No need for multiple types of almonds. By the way, any tips on slivering them?

    To Sliver almonds, Soak them for about double the time when blanching to soften the kernel.

    Remove the skin, cut them in half lengthwise, place the cut side down.

    Using a heavy knife, Cut them into 3-4 slivers.

    Spread them out on a cookie sheet and Dry out slivers in a 300F oven for a few minutes, be careful not to overcook them!
