I've just checked a new recipe that I am inflicting on the kids and himself this week and it includes almond meal - is this a flour substitute (and if so, is it plain or self-raising)? Thanks.

Sounds like ground almonds to me, easy enough to find in most supermarkets.

Depending on the recipe you could replace with something else.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almond_meal - not flour at all, just looks like it :-)

Had my shopping delivered and car (still) in garage. Would flour be ok? It's to make broccoli fritters (they've got cheese and eggs in too as well as some seasoning). Actually, living in Hicksville I doubt I could get almond meal even if I could get to the shops.
Plain flour or a wholemeal flour will be fine for a fritter.

Thanks Eccles, can't afford to experiment and hope it turns out ok!
I forgot to say if there is a raising agent such as baking powder you won't be albe to make it too far in advance as the active ingredients will wear themselves out.

I probably won't bother making it in advance as it looks pretty simple (she says) so won't take too long, thanks for the tip though.

no, no, Scrivens, it's coconuts that give milk
sherr, for next time, if your on delivery from one of the chain supermarkets they all sell gram (chickpea) flour, it makes lovely batter for veg fritters

^ leave out all the spicy stuff in that batter recipe, works fine
......and less expensive than just about anything with almond in I guess.
