With a blender and layered cheesecloth, a nut milk bag, or a fine mesh sieve, you can make a white, cloudy, digestible fluid. Some call it "milk," but milk is produced by the mammary glands of mammals. What I make comes from the bulk section of Berkeley Bowl, so stop calling it "nut milk!"
Tonight, I suffered severe lacerations while cooking. Not from my ultra-sharp santoku knife or even the most dangerous kitchen utensil ever invented - the mandolin - but from my homemade giant croutons.
