Almond Butter Recipe

I hope today finds you with excellent weather, awesome food, and good people to enjoy it with.

Let’s get down to cooking business.

The business is making ALMOND BUTTER at home.

We all know I have a little addiction to nut butters. Make that a large addiction. I shell out big bucks each week to make sure that I have at least five or six jars at my disposal. I eat it on everything. I grab a spoonful every time I’m within 50 feet of my kitchen. Let’s put it this way- blood doesn’t run through my veins, nut butter does.

I’ve dreamed of the day I could make my own, but my tiny 3 cup food processor smelled like smoke and sparked each time I used it, and I knew it wouldn’t be able to handle nuts. (That’s what she said.) So you can imagine my delight when a new family member came home on Saturday.

Let’s have a formal introduction- blog world, meet my new baby, Franny!

Franny is a brand spankin’ new, 9 cup food processor that has all kinds of features I’ll probably never learn to use, because I’ll be too busy making nut butters.

Are you getting anxious to see the goods? It’s really simple! All you need to do is stand there and drool while Franny works her magic.

A Long Time Coming Almond Butter

Ingredients:

  • Pinch salt

Directions:

  • Roast the almonds at 300 degrees for about 20 minutes. Give them a stir every few minutes to make sure they don’t burn. When they’re a teeny bit brown and smelling yummy, they’re done!
  • Toss them in your child food processor and pulse a few times to break up the nuts.
  • Turn the processor on and let it whirl.

It’s going to start looking like this:

Kind of looks like graham cracker crumbs! Scrape it down and add a little oil, if needed and let it keep running.

Patience is a virtue- soon it will look like the photo above!

It is absolutely necessary to scream “IT’S BUTTERIZING!” and make your family come look at it magically turn into almond butter.

When it looks like it’s done, let it keep going for another minute. I almost stopped it at this point, but I let it go a while longer and it got so creamy in that time.

I don’t know if most people get so excited about making their own nut butter, but this is the exact reason I started Make it Yourself Monday. There is nothing more gratifying than tasting something delicious and knowing that you made it yourself!

Even if my food processor did all the work, I still felt very proud

Look how creamy it is! I wish my camera could accurately show you how delicious and drippy it is. You’ll just have to make it yourself and see
