How Much Almond Paste Can Be Squeezed from Each Almond?

How much almond paste will 10 ounces of almonds produce?

First of all, almost no one makes their own almond paste these days. Actually it's not all that recent. We checked books going back more than 50 years, and most of them want you to buy almond paste. You certainly can find almond paste recipes, but making your own clearly puts you in a league of your own.

Second, the yield of almond paste you get from a certain amount of almonds depends somewhat on the recipe, which can include more or less sugar, confectioner's or granulated sugar or both, more or fewer eggs, corn syrup, or other variations. The recipe we've selected makes almond paste on a one-to-one basis that is, 1 cup of almonds produces 1 cup of almond paste.

Your 10 ounces of almonds is about 2-1/2 cups, so if you multiply the recipe by 2.5, you should wind up with 2-1/2 cups of almond paste.
