I was eatin fresh almonds tother day (I decided I like them a long time ago.)   I did a experiment.  I wanted to see if I could get that wonderful almond extract flavor from them.  I chewed and masticated (get your mind out of the gutter) and ched (my word – I like to make up my own words.  You know – what feels right) and masticated and ched and masticated til the nuts was microscopic.  I sucked on the paste and turned it round and round in my mouth.  Nuttin.  Just the normal nut almond flavor.  HOW DO THE EXTRACTORS DO IT?  I love that almond extract flavor but  – I COULD NOT GET IT!!!  

       It’s one of life’s great mysteries… and miracles.
