  1. is there a limit on how finely ground the almonds can be? i make almond butter and almond milk with my juicer. if i run them through dry do you think that’ll do the trick?

      You want them finely ground, but you don’t want the flavors/juice extracted from them or your marzipan will be tasteless.
