From The Almond Milk Cookbook
A Brief History of Almond Milk
Almonds have been enjoyed by humans for thousands of years. The earliest varieties of almonds were found in China and were carried by traders down the ancient silk road to Greece, Turkey, and the Middle East. Their first appearance in North America came via Spanish missionaries who settled in California. Today, almonds are featured prominently in both sweet and savory dishes in cuisines around the globe, and there are more than thirty different varieties of almonds cultivated and enjoyed worldwide.
