Making your own nut butter is super easy and delicious.  I do this a lot if I find that I need peanut butter or almond butter, but I don't have any in my cupboard.  Instead I'll throw some nuts in a food processor and, voila, instead nut butter.  All you have to do is process it with some salt until it reaches the "butter" consistency. Certain nuts will take different amounts of time. Cashews, for example, are way quicker than almonds (about 4 minutes versus 12). Nut Butter





Put in a food processor and process until smooth. This is what it should look like:

I started with a handful of almonds and a handful of cashews and a generous pinch of salt.

Flipped the 'on' switch...

After about a minute, it looked like this.

After another 2 minutes.

Another couple minutes later, I had delicious almond / cashew butter.
