Almond Butter

What you need: 

whole raw almonds
salt, optional

What you do: 

** Of course, this may also be made using the humble peanut and very good it is too.
Using no oil, toast the almonds in the oven, stirring every few minutes, until beginning to change color. Cool.
Place in a food processor and grind until very fine. Continue to process until the almonds begin to release their oil, resting the motor from time to time. Process until oily and smooth. Store in an airtight jar. * Dont be tempted to think the oil will not release. I assure you it WILL happen.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Thanks for the reply. It's been a couple of hrs since I tried to make this, still not smooth. Maybe I put too many in together, I'm not sure????? Will try again, hopefully with better results(smile).

maybe u didn´t process it long enough in the food processor? it takes a bit... it´s not done within 5 mins (at least not with my processor)
when i did it everything worked more than well, it worked and i got a creamy almond butter!

I tried making this today, my almond butter never got smooth like regular peanut butter. It was rather grainy and thick. The flavor was o.k. I had it on some celery sticks. Can anybody tell me what went wrong?

Yum!!! What ratio do you use for salt to nuts? We prefer our butters salted, but I don't want to accidentally add too much. Thanks!

like with any food, the key is experimentation and personal preference.  start with a lttle.

cheers!

This is awsome and so much cheaper than buying it at the store. I knew when to stop (i did use regular old peanuts) the food processor because it rolled itself in a ball strange huh?. I want to try this with my cashew toppers!!! It smells so good and tastes like natural like when u eat fresh veggies just plain and u can taste who natural they are.

This is awesome!!! FYI you can do this with about any nut or seed. I usually go for sunflower/pumpkin seed butter and spread it all over my pancakes and then some syrup....omg

I used wild hazelnuts and OH MY GOD IT TASTES WONDERFUL! Makes cracking the nuts open one by one worth it...

Such an easy, tasty, and healthy recipe - I love it. I'm going to try pistachios next!

This stuff is great!  Ok, I admit it: I made it with peanuts (one batch untoasted, one batch toasted- the untoasted does not taste much like anything.  Toasting makes this waaay better.) and I added sugar (about 2 tablespoons raw sugar dissolved in a little water) and salt.  It's like tradtional natural peanut butter, only a little grainier- I assume that's my 5.00 'food chopper' and not the recipe, though!  However, I also think that's why it does not seperate.

We are doing no salt and no sugar in addition to no meat and I had the hardest time finding peanutbutter that would suit our needs.  Then I thought to look here--and now I have an awesome recipe that I can use with any kind of nut I like!  Awesome!
