Thanks to Richard Dawkins I now know what Blancmange is

Probably not what Dawkins intended me to learn from the Blind Watchmaker, but in the first section of the book I became obsessed with all his references to Blancmange.  It seemed to be some kind of pudding!?  Made from almonds, this dessert which sets in a mould has a long tradition- Wikipedia says it was even mentioned in the Canterbury Tales!  I'm such a huge fan of anything nut flavored, I'm going to have to find a recipe and try it.
