Question Moldy dehydrated almond!!!!!

I soaked, boiled 1 minute, blanched, and dehydrated almonds for at least 20 hours. After they were completely cool, I put them in a glass air-tight container. They were fine for less than a month. After a month, they were all moldy.....

I don't understand why after 20 something hours of properly dehydrated (in an almost commercial grade dehydrator), they could get moldy??

It's good that you used glass for your container, it will stop any moisture from leaving or entering, like plastic does.

There had to be moisture left in the almonds in order for them to mold. You might try cutting the almonds smaller and you can look inside a dry almond and see if it is actually dry inside.
