First you have to finely chop the almonds in a blender. Then put them in a rather large bowl and cover with a liter of cold water to which you must add the grated rind of a lemon. Cover the bowl and leave to infuse for 6-8 hours.
After this time you have to filter through a very fine strainer and collect the liquid, squeeze well the chopped almonds even through a clean cloth to retrieve all the liquid.
To the liquid recovered almonds add the sugar and wheat starch (make sure no lumps are formed, in case they must be broken up). Also add the single cream. Put on low heat and bring to the boil stirring constantly.
Pour the cream into molds, let them cool and then place in the refrigerator for at least one night. Serve them cold.
