I have an AMNS and would like to try smoking some almonds or other nuts. Been looking on here and have seen a few great sounding recipes. But...I'm a little stumped on what I need to buy with respect to the main ingredient.
Some recipes say they use 'raw' almonds but...doing a search around the web, I see some folks talking about raw almonds being illegal and that they need to be pasteurized or something.
Other places sell blanched almonds ?
I've got a local candy/nut company that seems to sell almonds under a category called "raw" - could someone who is in the know please take a look at the link and tell me whether these are the kind that would work well for smoking or if I should be looking for something else.
