Almonds are one of the healthiest dry fruits and also very easily available. They are enjoyed by people of all age groups. At the same time, some people also like to eat soaked almonds. Most of us throw away the shells while doing this, but did you know that there are many ways almond shells can actually be beneficial to you? We’re here to tell you why you shouldn’t throw away almond husks. So read on to know more.
Almond shells can be used for compost
Almond shells can be used as fertilizer in plants. The antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiviral and prebiotic properties present in almond shells work to increase the number of metabolites and vitamin E in plants. To make compost from almond peels, first dry them well in the sun and grind them fine. Now put the powder made from almond shells into the plants.
Consume almond shells in different ways
You can also consume almond shells in the form of chutney. To make chutney, soak the almond shells overnight. Now roast the peanuts and grind them with almond peels. Put oil in a pan, add onion, urad dal, black pepper powder and cumin and fry together. After cooling, mix ground almond peel, peanuts, salt and tamarind juice through this mixture. Serve by garnishing the chutney with a tempering of mustard seeds and curry leaves.
Making body wash from almond peels
Body wash made from almond shells helps to moisturize and keep the skin soft with anti-aging properties. To make it, mix 2 teaspoons of milk, 1 teaspoon of turmeric, a little rose water and honey in 1 tablespoon of almond peel and let it soak for 5 minutes. Apply this mixture as a body scrubber and face mask.
