ALMONDS - to skin or not to skin (that is the question)

Nothing will "happen" if you leave those almonds as is, Helen; in fact,
you'll probably end up with a tastier dish. Not to mention the extra fiber!
Unless you're really going for a pale presentation, don't bother to
peel/skin the nuts. I've used nothing but whole natural almonds for years.
