So I grew up in Almond country and thought you nut milk drinkers need to know how labor intensive the product is to get.
lol ....there ARE those that think you do milk the almond
Ya cut a series of diagonal lines on either side of a vertical center line on opposite sides of the tree to let the almond milk drain into the collection buckets. Only flows for the first hour at sunrise. Then workers are back out there at midnight to reopen the lines in the trees for the next sunrise flow “milking” . Yes-very labor intensive.
If nut milking is an art, I met a girl in college that would have put Edvard Munch to shame.
But I do have a question, given I've never heard of a lactating almond..
So, what do they do to get milk out of an almond? Do they hook almonds up to a milking machine, or what? :^)
