Almond Flour for Macarons

SteveG | Oct 20, 2006 07:38 PM

Where do I get finely ground blanched almond flour for macarons?

A few years ago Sixy asked the question and responses included Trader Joe's, Rainbow Grocery, and Berkeley Bowl.

Elsewhere online I saw a mention of Trader Joe's stocking almond meal, made from unblanched almonds--I'm probably not interested in that.

In the past I've purchased Berkeley Bowl's almond paste from the little fridge in the bulk area, but it was pretty coarse--is the almond flour more finely ground? Is it made from blanched almonds?

Rainbow Grocery: the same questions apply here, also whether or not it's in a fridge or just in the bulk bins where it could be going stale/rancid.
