almond butter

Yield: 3/4 cup

Did you know you could make homemade almond butter in a food processor? Raw almond butter can be purchased at most natural food stores, but homemade is more
economical and fresh. I like it with celery stalks and raisins (remember Ants on a Log?), smeared on a banana, or sandwiched between two apple slices.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds, unsoaked
  • Dash salt

Equipment

  • measuring cups
  • food processor
  • rubber spatula

Put the almonds and salt in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the almonds are ground into a paste, stopping occasionally to scrape down the work bowl with a rubber spatula. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Almond Butter will keep for 3 months.
