Slicing Nuts

This is how we dice and slice nuts

The nut is usually too soft to slice when it is raw.  So we need to make it a lot more brittle.

We do that by roasting the nut and then at a critical stage and tempoerature we put the nuts through a very expensive and sophisticated machine - the Urschel CC slicer.

That machine can slice 4,000 pounds of almonds an hour - much more than our needs.   It is a precision stainless steel German machine - unrivaled worldwide.

Here is what sliced almonds look like from our Urschel slicer
