Why Choose Sliced Almonds
When you purchase almonds from Glenda’s Farmhouse, you can choose whole or sliced almonds. Knowing when to select sliced almonds might require some knowledge regarding function and flavor.
Sliced almonds offer a delicious sweet and nutty flavor along with the color provided by the almond skin. Typical uses for sliced almonds include topping yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, and salads or adding them to rice and other grain dishes for texture and flavor.
Almonds are a superfood, nutritionally and in a culinary sense. Sliced almonds are incredibly versatile, from mixing them into sauces or batter for baked goods, adding them to tuna or chicken salad, or tossing them into a pasta or vegetable salad.
If you’re trying to avoid bread, consider chopping up sliced almonds into a fine texture and using them as a substitute for breading when you air fry chicken tenders, pork chops, or chicken legs.

Buying and Storing Sliced Almonds
Sliced almonds are ideal for incorporating into a recipe or as a topping or quick addition, but if you’re planning to toast almonds for a snack, you should choose whole almonds.
Almonds can be stored for a relatively long time, but when they turn, they become rancid. The flavor will be off – bitter and unpleasant – although the almonds are not dangerous to eat.
To store almonds, keep them in the original packaging, unopened, for up to two years if kept in a cool place and not exposed to light. They’ll last far longer if you place them in the fridge or freezer.
After opening the almonds, they should be stored in an airtight container in a cool, unlit area for up to three months. The airtight container for storage is critical because the almonds will draw bugs and take on the odors of the environment without it.
