Directions:
Discard large broccoli leaves and tough ends of stalks. Wash well and drain. Split each stalk length-wise into halves or quarters. Add water to large pot and bring to boil. Place broccoli stalks standing upright in colander and place colander in boiling water. Boiling water should cover stalks but not florets. Cover pot and cook until stalks begin to become tender. While broccoli cooks melt butter in small saucepan. Add salt and lemon juice to butter and simmer for five minutes. Add toasted almonds to butter sauce. When broccoli is cooked, drain, and arrange on heated serving platter. Top broccoli with almonds in butter sauce and serve. Makes 8 servings.

To toast almonds, preheat oven to 375. Place slivered almonds on cookie sheet. Toast for 5 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. Cook broccoli immediately prior to serving.
