    Sage's Note:

    Almonds use to be a great feature of British cookery, where they were toasted as a garnish and flavouring for green beans, or pounded, as a thickener for sauces or to lighten cakes and puddings. This soup is served either hot or chilled.

      Put the ground almonds with the milk in a small saucepan and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Add the crumbs and simmer for 3 minutes more, then liquidise or rub to a purée with a spoon.

      In a large pan, melt the butter, add the flour and stir it in then stir in the almond purée. Gradually add the stock and when you have a smooth soup, season with salt, cayenne pepper and ground mace.

      Meanwhile fry the slivered almonds to a golden brown in the tablespoon of butter and scatter them on the soup just before serving.
