Horchata de Almendra

Admin :: Edit

Country of the Food: Spanish | Email to Author               Posted on 20 April 2003 @ 08:04:56


1/2 kilo (1 pound) Almonds
1/2 kilo (1 pound) Sugar
1 Lemon
1 Cinnamon Stick
1 Pinch of Salt
2.5 liters Water (warm)

The first step is to remove the skins from the almonds. The best way to do this is to simply buy them already skinless. If none are available, you will have to boil the skins off. Put the almonds in a pot of boiling water and let sit until the skins become very soft. With time, the skins will dissolve or slide off easily when stirred. Boiling the almonds is a pain. It is much easier to just buy them without skins.
Crush or otherwise pulverise the almonds into a coarse powder. If you boiled your almonds to get the skins off, then smash them (or put them in a strong blender while adding some water) into a mush.
In a large bowl/container add the 2.5 liters of water with a pinch of salt. Slice and add the lemon.
Now mix in the almond powder (or mush). Cover the container and let it sit at room temperature for 2 hours.
When the two hours are up, add the sugar and cinnamon stick. Stir until sugar is completely dissovled.
Strain the liquid with a fine cloth. This removes all of the larger particles of almond. Strain until texture is smooth (twice should do it).
