Yes you definitely can. Almond is a highly nutritious nut with lots of iron, calcium, magnesium, and good fats. This nut has been extensively studied for its potential health benefits, and it has been proved that almond skin has properties that can kill bacteria. The result of the study is as follows:

·     Polyphenol found in almond skin is effective against food-borne microorganisms.

·     Natural almond skin was most effective against the bacteria called Helicobacter pylori, which causes gastric ulcer.

·     Almond skin can be used in combination with antibiotics for greater efficacy.

So in order to derive its antibiotic properties, make sure you don’t blanch your almonds! Here are some other health benefits of almonds you might want to know.
