Almond


almond soup



Almond soup is an excellent substitute for beef-tea for convalescents.

 It is made by simply blanching and pounding a quarter of a pound of sweet almonds with
half a pint of milk, or vegetable stock. Another pint of milk or stock is then to be
added and the whole warmed. After this add another pint and a half of stock if
the soup is to be a vegetable one, or rice water if milk has been used.
An emulsion of almonds is useful in chest affections. It is made by well
macerating the nuts in a nut butter machine, and mixing with orange or lemon
juice.
Almonds should always be blanched, that is, skinned by pouring boiling water
on the nuts and allowing them to soak for one minute, after which the skins are
easily removed. The latter possess irritating properties.
Bitter almonds should not be used as a food. They contain a poison identical
with prussic acid.
