What is the ideal amount of time to blanch almonds? Should I boil or pour hot water over them? @Food52Hotline

You can just soak them in water for a couple of hours and then the skins will slip off easily. No need to use boiling water.

If you would like the almonds remain crunchy/dry, pour boiling water over them and let them sit for just 3-4 minutes. Strain and rinse with cold water. The skins are now wrinkly and the almonds will pop out easily when skinned.
