  • Blanch your almonds to remove the skin (if they’re not already blanched) — Place almonds in a bowl. Pour boiling water to barely cover almonds. Let the almonds sit for exactly 1 minute. Drain, rinse under cold water, and drain again. Pat dry and slip the skins off.
  • Combine almonds, macadamia nuts and dates in a storage container. I used a Weck jar. Add water, cover, and let soak uncovered overnight at room temperature, around 12 hours.
