Disclaimer: don't actually try this. This recipe is not FDA-approved and to be frank, I haven't even tested the canned stuff yet. Stay tuned for details on whether or not I've contracted botulism from my own foolishness. Just saying.
[Disclaimer edit] I'm emphasizing the above. DON'T TRY THIS. It was a miserable failure and I dumped everything out. Maybe I didn't process it long enough - everything came unsealed. [/Disclaimer edit]
Number one on the list: how do you milk an almond? It's easy. First, you soak a cup of almonds in water overnight. This plumps them up.
|I recommend a bigger blender than this, if you can find one.|
This is where we deviate from the normal path. Right now your almond milk is perfectly good. You can drink it, put it on your cereal, make smoothies, or use it to trick your friends. What I do next might ruin it.
this. I frequently use pickyourown.org and I have a good deal of faith in it. So water bath canning for 30 minutes.
blueberry coffee cake, but not for drinking.
So stay tuned to see what I do with the almond meal, and if not that, then at least stay tuned to see if this canning adventure puts me in the hospital. If it doesn't, I'm sure this isn't the last you'll see of home-canned almond milk.
[Edit] This canning adventure was a horrible disaster. An utter failure in terms of almond milk and a huge waste of time. Everything came unsealed and smelled awful. Almond milk is very tasty raw and perhaps that's just the way it's meant to be. Maybe someday I'll attempt this adventure again and see if I can find a way to make it work, but thus far, this qualifies as Biggest Kitchen Disaster EVER. [/Edit]
