chop garlic, discarding any hard pieces. Finely chop 6 almonds in
processor. Add yellow peppers, half of garlic, 1 teaspoon reserved
pepper juice, 1/2 tablespoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon vinegar and pinch of
cayenne and puree. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to small
bowl. Using clean processor, repeat with remaining 6 almonds, red
peppers, remaining garlic, 1 teaspoon pepper juice, 1/2 tablespoon
olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon vinegar and pinch of cayenne. Season with
salt and pepper. (Can be made 6 hours ahead. Cover and chill purees
separately. Bring to room temperature before serving.) Simultaneously
spoon each puree into shallow bowl. Shake bowl gently, allowing
purees to meet in center. Serve with crudites and pita wedges. Makes
