To toast whole, slivered, chopped or sliced almonds: Place in a single layer in a dry skillet, and turn heat to medium. Toast, stirring occasionally, until almonds are fragrant (2-5 minutes depending on the form of almonds you are toasting). If the almonds are blanched, let them turn golden brown; if they have skins, let their skins just begin to crackle.
