Couldn't resist buying a bottle of Almond Dew during my last trip to the Asian market. Anyone know what to do with it?
If it's the thickish white stuff you can dilute it with water for a tasty drink - usually drunk hot in the winter. I've only ever seen the powdered stuff, what brand is yours?
It's a clear liquid--can't tell the brand name because the label is written entirely in Asian characters.
Post a photo, I read Chinese.
Anything you can tell me would be great!
Seems to be the liquid version of what I used to buy powdered. I'll look in a Chinese market this weekend and see if I can find it. The instructions on the back are a bit blurry.
Yeah--sorry about that--my camera is a bit on the 'outdated' side.
Conversely, I am going to try to find the powdered kind in my market :)
The powdered one is nice, it makes a thickish drink. Very almondy. I'm thinking because this has almond oil in it it will be cloudy when diluted (like ouzo).
I've been thinking of making a cocktail with it--maybe with some Calvados or other brandy. I'm just afraid to open it as I don't know how long it will keep once it's open. And I also fear that I will not be able to find it again at the market.
Ingredients are stable, I should think, I'd chance it. Was it with the drink powders and whatnot?
After you open it, it keeps for years. That was my experience.
I was in a midsized Chinese market this weekend and didn't see either. :(
Well that's a bummer! I'm thinking of using some in my Thanksgiving cocktails. Oh--I can't remember in which section I found it. Maybe by the vinegars?
I'll keep an eye out.
I believe it is used to make the soft Annin-doufu dessert of almond milk flavored tofu.
Thanks--I'll Google that!
