    On Google they say dry @ 65C 12/24 hrs.

    Marzipan, as long as it's in open air and kept dry will store for ages, and will go hard, not that it lasts that long here!

    How do you buy your almonds, FF?

    I had some seed that went mouldy in a sealed box. Would you be better keeping them in a brown paper bag out of sunlight and away from pests?

    Sorry Snoop, missed this! My MIL buys me small packets from her trips to the market in town. I don't eat them, but despite telling her that, she still gets them for me so I humour her - she's 89!

    You've prompted me to check on the last batch I did a month ago. They're still ok in a take-away sealed container in a cupboard!

    One way to use them up as a snack is to heat a teaspoon or two of olive oil in a small frying pan then fry them for a few minutes. Shake them about a bit to stop them burning. As soon as they start popping and jumping a bit in the pan (you'll know what I mean as soon as they do it), tip them out onto a piece of kitchen paper to dab off excess oil then season with a little salt. Much nicer for nibbles than plain almonds.

    Edited to add: Forgot to say you can do this with almonds still in their skins or blanched.
