The almond pulp is next dried at a low temperature in the oven, allowed to cool overnight on the counter, and then processed into almond meal in a food processor or high-powered blender.
What can you do with leftover almond milk?
, allowing the milk to drain into the dish.
A strainer balanced over a sink with a bowl underneath can be used to place the straining bag inside and enable the almond milk to drain. Squeeze the bag to get the leftover liquid out after the mixture has drained for a few minutes. (Don’t throw out all that milk; you’ll be astonished how much is left in there!) Store the milk in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to a week. The leftover almond pulp in the straining bag can be composted or used to make almond butter.
What is the best way to store leftover almond pulp?
If you plan to repurpose the leftover almond pulp, keep it in the fridge for approximately a week in a sealed container or bag.
If you want to use it later but don’t think you’ll be able to do so within a week, freeze it in a sealed bag or container until you need it.
To defrost the frozen almond pulp, simply place it in the fridge until softened, or place it in water to thaw faster if necessary.
How long can almond pulp be stored?
Leftover almond pulp can be kept in the fridge for up to five days. If you’re going to keep almond pulp in the fridge, make sure it’s in a tightly sealed container. Glass or another airtight container can be used. Simply make sure the container is sealed because moisture can develop and cause the pulp to go bad faster or develop mold if any air gets in.
You can also freeze almond pulp if you don’t want to use it right away. If you’re freezing the pulp, a reusable silicone storage bag, such as a Stasher, is probably best, but you can also freeze the pulp in a glass mason jar or other freezer-safe container.
