Almond Pudding, Colonial American

Pound almonds in a mortar until very fine, or blend in a food processor. Stir in the water and milk; let stand for about fifteen minutes. Strain mixture through cheesecloth. The mixture will be heavy and take time to drip through; make sure every last bit is extracted. In a bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1/4 cup of water to soften. Scald cream in a saucepan; stir in the gelatin and sugar until both are dissolved. Add almond liquid and flavoring. Pour into a small mold, or a bowl, and refrigerate for several hours until firm. Serve with whipped cream.
