Almond Flour

I think I have come to the conclusion that it is cheaper to grind my own than to buy it. So now my question is what kind of almonds make the best flour? The first time I made it I used raw almonds, but I found roasted almonds at Costco and I'd like to know if it makes a difference in the flour if the almonds are roasted (or salted) or not. I would appreciate any input from all you experience LC bakers out there.

there was a thread a week or so ago about almond flour and I believe they said the best kind are raw almonds, not roasted. It makes the flavor different. Do a search for almond flour and you can probably find that post.

I did try this, but wasn't able to find the thread. If anyone else knows, I would love to hear from you. I have a big bag of roasted almonds that I will use either way, but it still would be nice to know which one is better.

Thanks!
