What Is Ground Almonds?
Almonds grow in a shell that leaves a residue and skin on the outside of the meat. When the skin is removed, in a process called blanching, the result is a skinless, white almond, with less bitter qualities. The skinned almonds are then further sliced into flakes known for their sweetness or more specifically their especially distinct "Marzipan" flavour.
