I was giving my almond meal, leftover from making almond milk, to my chickens until I found this blog http://detoxinista.com/ Wow the woman has a ton of recipes! I want to try making Grain-Free Shortbread Cookies so I needed almond flour. Have you seen the cost of almond flour?? Yikes!
Here's how I made my own almond flour. I quickly sewed up a rectangle into a nut bag. I found some old polyester material that works really well. I have since found sheer curtain material that I'll try next but for now the polyester does a good job. I think the sheer material will dry much quicker.
I squeeze the heck out of the bag until all the milk is gone. Then I’m left with the almond meal/pulp.
Spread it out on a dehydrator tray. I put down a layer of parchment paper because my tray has big holes. I set the dehydrator temp at around 110 degrees Fahrenheit but not higher than 115. This is the perfect temperature for making yogurt so I did up a batch of that too.
After about 12-24 hours it should be dry, you can give it a toss or shake during that time. When it’s thoroughly dry put it in your blender and grind it up. Here’s some I did the other day. I store it in a Ziploc baggie in my freezer. The cookie recipe I want to make only makes 8 cookies and I’d like to make more so I’m stockpiling until I get enough.
