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.

Try and add some melted chocolade to the nutbutter: totally adictive.  Grin

Little tip for those without high speed blenders;
Just pour boilling water over your nuts ( ahum) and just let it stand for 30 minutes.
Any blender will turn them into nutbutter than .

does pouring water on nuts make them soft?

Yes!
You can soak them in cold water, but hot water just speeds it up.
If i make nutbutter without soaking it will take forever and i do have to stop  a few times else my foodprocessor will overheat.
If i soak them , it takes about 10 minutes and no overheating.
I figured soaking is cheaper as buying a new high speed blender.

Doing this with flavored nuts is great, too. I love it with Honey Roasted Peanuts, NOM NOM NOM! I really want to make an inappropriate joke right now but I'm not witty sometimes, sorry.
