Did you know you can make your own almond or pecan meal?
Yes, you can!
It is very simple to make your own almond or pecan meal. You need only almonds or pecans and a food processor.
A few times, I have gone to make something that calls for almond or pecan meal and realized I was out; that is disappointing! As long as you have nuts and a food processor, you do not need to ever run out of almond or pecan meal.
Almond and Pecan meal is expensive but it is very simple to make your own. You need only almonds or pecans and a good food processor. I have never seen pecan flour in the store, but you can buy almond flour.
What is the difference between Meal and Flour?
First, let’s establish the difference between “meal” and “flour”.
This will make almond or pecan meal; it is a bit more coarse. You will probably not get the fine consistency you would want for flour from this process. You would usually make bread or cake with flour.
How to Make it:
Get a Food processor and pecans or almonds
Add nuts to processor
Don’t add too many at a time so they have room to move. It just works better that way.
Give it a minute or two. Check to see how it is and give it another go if you need to until it is the consistency you like.
Store in a cool, dry place. The refrigerator is a great place.
