Fill up a pot with cold tap water. Make sure the tap water is not as hot as it can compromise on the nutrients. There should be enough water so that all the almonds are fully submerged.
Place this pot over low heat on the stove. Bring the water to boil. Wait till the water is adequately boiled and bubbles appear.
Gently add the almonds in boiling water. Let the almonds remain for about a minute. Meanwhile, set up a colander or strainer over your kitchen sink.
Take the boiling water pot off the stove. Gently pour the almonds soaked in water over the colander set up in the sink. Ensure all hot water is drained.
By now only the almonds should remain in the colander. Rinse the almonds with cold water in the colander itself. Rinse well for about a minute or two until the almonds are cool enough to be touched.
Transfer the almonds on a paper towel to soak up excess water. You would notice the skin of almonds are a little wrinkled.
Now, gently pinch the almonds between two fingers to separate them from skin. The almonds might shoot up and land far away from you so keep a plate or cup handy so that almonds are collected there.
