Almond meal can be found in specialty stores and some supermarkets. One pound of almond meal yields about 4 3/4 cups. To make 2 cups of almond meal in a food processor, grind 1 1/3 cups (6.6 oz) raw almonds with the 2 tablespoons of the white sugar listed in the recipe (the sugar helps give the nuts a finer grind). Blanched almonds will give the jaconde a more elegant look, but whole raw almonds will work just as well. Proceed as directed.
