Did you know you can make your own nut butter? It's stupid easy! All you need is:

Nuts!
Salt (optional)
Oil (optional, neutral flavored like vegetable, canola, etc)
Food Processor (or probably high speed blender? Can't you make anything in those?)



Step 1: Get some Nuts!

I'm using Mixed Nuts and Pecans from TJ's, raw almonds and some raw cashews (not pictured). I mistakenly bought low salt mixed nuts, but that's ok, we can fix that. Also, I picked out the Brazil Nuts. I don't care how much Selenium those have, I don't dig 'em. You can use multiple nuts like I did or pick your favorite nut. But if you make Brazil Nut butter you don't have to share with me.

Step 2: Throw them in your food processor! See, nasty Brazil nuts on side.


Step 3: Spin it 'round like a record baby, round right round round!

Process on low until it starts to come together. Add a few pinches of salt. Mmm Salt.

Step 4: Keep processing! You can do it!

You can add a few drippy drops of oil if it seems really dry, but it should start getting butter-y around 5 minutes or so. Taste and add more salt if you like.

Step 5: Put in container with a tight fitting lid. Try not to eat all of it at once. Mmm Nut Butter. Store in fridge if you want. Or don't, I'm not your boss.
