You have to blanch the raw almonds first, i.e. remove their skins:
Cover almonds with boiling water and let them soak in it, while stirring, for about 3 min. Drain the almonds and then rub the skins off with your fingers. You now have blanched almonds.



To flake your blanched almonds:
Working quickly while the blanched almonds are still hot and soft, use a vegetable peeler or small knife to slice the almonds into flat discs or flakes. You now have flaked almonds. If you then further slice each disk finely lengthwise, you will have slivered almonds.


Note: The almonds need to be hot and soft at each stage (blanching; flaking; slivering), so it might be best to work in small batches (i.e. blanch then flake then sliver the first small batch before starting on the second).
