Slivered almonds are basically blanched almonds sliced up. They are just the right size for putting in cakes and other baking, as well as for sprinkling over salads, cooked veges, fruit salads...or if your kids want to decorate a cake, give them a handful of these! They save you having to try and cut up whole blanched almonds. For nutritional information, see almonds. We also use slivered almonds in the topping for our almond bars.
