In the springtime, driving north on highway 99 through Central California is a kind of heaven. At just the right month when the acres of almond trees are in full blossom, the azure blue sky is offset by the almond trees' pink pillowy flowers, and the air smells of fresh, nutty almonds that are just about to fall to the ground in great fragrant rains. The most nutrient-dense tree nut also makes one of the most savory, delicious extracts, second only to vanilla in its density of flavor. In fact, vanilla and almond flavors interchange extremely well, and sometimes you can't tell one from the other. Add almond extract to a recipe where you normally just use vanilla, and begin to consider all the other ways you can put this deliciously fragrant, protein-rich extract to use. Pretty soon, a dash here, a dash there will not be out of place.
Folks who find whole bottles of almond extract on their pantry shelves one day are surprised to discover its welcome presence in most dishes. For starters, any time you use vanilla extract, almond will suffice to change up the pace a bit. Give it a shot in chocolate chip cookies or even white cake, and you may not try anything different. The epicurious among us have tried adding it on to oatmeal, in smoothies, and into the ice cream mixer. Some even venture to say it tastes great in coffee with a little bit of milk.
