*how to: ground almonds

2 quarts or more unpasteurized organic raw almonds. Soak almonds overnight in filtered water. Drain and put on dehydrator trays for 24-36 hours until dry. Store in airtight container and use as needed for recipes. Skip the soaking and dehydrating if you don't have a dehydrator.

**how to: date paste

25 Medjool dates. Pit dates and soak for ½ hour. Drain and put in food processor. Blend until smooth with no chunks (may need to add water if too thick). Store in fridge.
