Found truly lovely instructions on the internet in the form of a utube video ...only one tiny problem--instruction is.in french.....i don't speak french.

so now I know HOW to do it but I can't figure out if you blanch the almonds first or grind them raw with a bit of sugar. Also puzzled at how much ground almond to use.

help please.

oh and happy new year!!!!!!
