Preparation / Directions:
Here are a couple of recipes for almond pudding. There are lots of
of this dish some using dairy products, some using gelatin and some using
agar and some combining them. It IS good! This first one is more "from
scratch". The second uses almond extract.
Mix the almonds and rice in a bowl with 2 pints (5 cups) cold water, cover
leave for 2 hours. Strain through a fine muslin into a large bowl. Add milk
and mix well.
Stand the bowl in a large saucepan with enough boiling water to come
halfway up the sides of the bowl. Cover and simmer for 2 hours,
Add the sugar, stir well and leave to cool slightly. Mix the gelatin
with 2 tablespoons (2 1/2 T) hot water until dissolved. Stir into
the milk mixture when almost cold. Mix well and pour into a shallow
serving dish. Leave until set.
