An afterthought: If you do grind them to use as almond flour (almond meal is probably a more accurate term), do it as needed, not ahead of time. Whole nuts will keep longer than ground ones because there's less surface exposed to air (or at least that's what the cooks say about herbs and spices).

At 200 mph....you could probably have that other 25 lb of almonds here in what, 10-12 hrs. Call me when you leave out.

I think all you have to do is throw them into a food processor. Im gonna set a bigger bag for that. I will take some to my moms house Christmas and try to make me some almond flour, she just bought a ninja food processor

I was reading online that to get a finer flour, you should use a blender. Do one cup at a time, sift them, put the bigger particles back in with another cup of almonds, repeat. I'm going to try this. I really like the finer flour.

WOW Mcseccne! I am a bit jealous

When I made nut crust for my low-carb pumpkin pie, I ground my own almonds, since the recipe called for "unblanched" almond flour, and mine was blanched. As I recall I used 1 cup of almond flour and 1/2 of pecan flour I made also. I have a Magic Bullet, and grind my flours in that, it has a grinding blade that is just like a coffee grinder blade, in addition to the regular blender blade.

I do think freezing most of them in 1 lb. lots is a good idea, although almonds stay fresh for quite a while, all nuts will eventually go rancid after a while.

Hiya Miss Gretchen!

I guess I got lucky on this one! I'll have to check out that Magic Bullet. I bought a blender long time ago and paid ALOT of money for it..I think It may be able to handle the almond flour for me....there is only one way to find out!!

I havent frozen any of them yet.. I do have the ones I have bagged in the fridge but I have not yet froze any of them....I may have to just to have room for them all. Ive bagged another 16 pounds today and there is still a significant amount still loose in the box. you would think i would have some almond flour in the box but suprisingly it is nothing but nuts they are not smashed or anything!!! amazing to me really!

I usually leave the house with my left pocket filled with almonds when wearing slacks
