Do folks make their own? Is it less expensive?  Worth it?

As I've always feared not getting the right texture and/or gumming it up, I simply buy in bulk the little amount that I might need for a recipe.

I used to make it, like twenty years ago. I had a little mill, kind of like a mouli grater—it worked really well, but was a lot of trouble. Now that almond flour’s readily available everywhere I just buy it.

i buy massive bags of it from costco.


then again i am an indifferent baker.

my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary


current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)


current whisky review: glen ord 28


current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

Buy it. Not worth the trouble as beccaboo said.


Sometimes I add some ground almonds into the flour if I want texture.

Buy it. Seriously, there are plenty of things worth making from scratch. Almond flour is not one of them.
