Almonds - Blanched and Sliced

Slivered and sliced almonds are routinely used in baked goods like biscotti, cakes, and cookies. Though they can occasionally be used interchangeably, subtle differences in preparation and shape can affect the flavor or consistency of a dish. Toasted, caramelized, candied or blanched -- there seems to be an endless variety of almonds types to choose from. The terms sliced and slivered refer to the way the almond is cut. Sliced almonds are cut along an almond's horizontal plane, resulting in thin, wide, oval chips. Slivered almonds are cut into a julienne shape, like tiny matchsticks. Slivered almonds are usually thicker pieces while sliced almonds are so thin they are almost transparent. Another significant distinction between slivered and sliced almonds is in how they are made. Sliced almonds come either blanched or unblanched (natural) versions. Blanching is a process in which the almonds are heated, usually in boiling water, to about 160 degrees Fahrenheit. While they are still warm, the skins are removed before the almonds are cut into either slivers or slices. Some sliced almonds are available with a thin edge of the skin still attached. Slivered almonds are always blanched and have their skins removed before cutting. Most recipes specify slivered or sliced almonds, but occasionally you could use either. For a more subtle flavor as a garnish you should use either blanched sliced or slivered almonds may be best. If you are choosing what's best to use, consider both the kind of recipe and your own preferences. Almonds in their skin tend to have a heartier, nuttier flavor, so if you want to taste more of the almond, opt for natural sliced almonds. Another consideration is how the almonds are cooked. If they are mixed into a batter, either is likely fine, but if they are sprinkled on the top or layer the bottom of a dish, sliced almonds are more likely to burn because they are thinner.
