Almond Flour

Almonds are high in manganese, vitamin E and magnesium. As they have a high fat content, it is important to store them properly to stop them from becoming rancid. Store shelled almonds in a tightly sealed container, in a cool dry place away from exposure to sunlight. Almonds and nut flours can be stored in the refrigerated for several months, and in the freezer for up to a year.  Almonds still in their shell have the longest shelf life.

Almond meal is the same as almond flour.

    Almond meal is lovely for the different texture it brings to baked goods – lovely little friands being a great example, and most flourless chocolate cakes too!
