I drink nondairy milks (mostly almond, some soy) and eat tofu. When I have made these things in the past, I have enjoyed the results but ended up with a lot of dirty dishes. A friend recommended the Soyajoy G3
, which is a countertop electric appliance that heats and grinds the nuts/beans (previously
in 2005, about an earlier model). Does anyone have experience with electric soy/nut-milk makers?

I'm pan cooking Whole Foods bulk raw almonds, amd I'm trying to get them crunchy rather than chewy or mealy. I'm sauteeing them over med-high heat in a 10" skillet with a little olive oil and salt. Should I toast them low and long or hot and quick?

Can you get an allergy from peanuts? My diet has changed recently and sometimes I will end up eating 1/3 of jar in a day. I'm eating the all natural kind that doesn't contain trans fats.
Is the saturated fat any better for you because it comes from peanuts?
I'm also eating more almonds lately and I've noticed that they often have almost no taste to me in the middle of the day, but at night (especially an hour or two before bed) they have this very sweet, full taste. Do your tastebuds change through out the day?

I bought a very large bag of slivered almonds at Costco, and I've come to accept that there's no way I'm going to work my way through it before the nuts go bad. What are your favorite recipes that use sliced almonds? I'm especially interested in things that your average food-wary child would be willing, if not eager, to eat.

My dad loves nuts and I'd like to get a gift box of quality nuts of some kind. I want to order something but I'm wary about getting dried-out / grocery store nuts placed in nice packaging. Are there any nut mail order places worth raving about? Who is the Chocosphere of the nut world?

I am trying to add more nuts to my diet (specifically almonds) but want to make sure I'm eating the right ones. Do tins of Planters mixed nuts or Blue Diamond smoked almonds have the same nutritional benefits of raw or dry-roasted nuts that I can find in the local Whole Foods store? [more inside]

I love Almond Butter but here in the UK a little jar that holds about 300 grams costs around £4.00 or $7.00. I decided to try and make it myself. I bought a bunch of almonds, put them - as I was advised into a food processor, using the steel blades and turned it on - what I ended up with was finally ground almonds. I have looked everywhere from google on down and found nothing useful. What i am after is a pure almond butter, with nothing added, like the stuff that comes in the expensive jars from health food shops. Can anyone tell me how to this?
