Urtatim asked about almond milk:

On our local Kingdom cooking list, we're having a discussion of almond  
milk. This topic was brought up by a new cook.

Does one make almond milk of:
-- almonds with skin on;
-- almonds soaked overnight in cold water, skin left on;
or some variation thereof.

How finely does one process the almonds:
-- coarsely chopped;
-- finely chopped;
or some variation thereof.

How do the commercial almonds milks compare to homemade, particularly  
in flavor and in texture?
I only know of two brands:
-- Pacific Naturals Organic Almond Milk
-- Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almond Milk
NOTE: Both now make unsweetened almond milks, but previously only had  

For a fair amount of commentary, including comments about some of the  
variations proposed, see this file in the FOOD section of the  
almond-milk-msg  (100K)  1/12/08    Making almond milk. Recipes.

The folks on that list might also be interested in these similar food  
items as well:

We've also discussed almond-milk cheese which I've collected some of  
the discussion on. I haven't turned it into a file but I can or I can  
send the raw messages if someone is interested.
