Is "almond flour" the same thing as "almond meal"? Or is there a finer grind of almonds out there somewhere that I haven't found yet?

Thanks, Lola. I was contemplating buying a flour mill cause I couldn't find the flour anywhere. Called "flour" in recipes but "meal" in stores. gheesh.

Easy enough to make in your food processor or blender.

Yes, and it's much cheaper to make your own than to buy it.

Not always. Blanched almonds are the same price as whole almonds are the same price as almond meal at my local bulk food store. Same with pecan meal, pecan peices, pecan halves, etc. I LOVE bulk barn...

I use raw.  Is there a reason to use blanched?

All "raw" almonds are heat pastuerized now. I just buy mine in the tray packs at Walmart. I might start looking and seeing if they have them any cheaper at Sam's. They don't have Costco locally.

I just drop the almonds in the food processor.

I found a good source for raw nuts in BC. Most (including the almonds) are not heated or pasteurized. With this supplier on hand, I have decided to go ahead and purchase a small flour mill anyway. I don't have a food processor and don't see the need for one but I think I will find many uses for a flour mill. It will do as coarse or as fine a grind as you like, so good for almost anything you can think of. Maybe I'll even try pecan flour! Or macademia nut flour! Oh the freshness!

blanched are simply soaked and without the skin......
you can blanch your own by simply soaking overnight, taking away the skin, air drying and then grinding into flour.

I like keeping the skin for extra fiber.

Well, me too, but I don't mind the extra color and texture it lends.
