Making almond butter
You will need approximately 10oz. of raw almonds, and a bit less salt, appoximately 1 teaspoon. Plus you’ll need 1/4 cup of oil, you can use peanut, soybean or even olive if you want that flavor.
Dump it all in a food processor and pulse until it reaches texture you’d like. Simple – delicious too. It’s amazing.
One thing I did discover – if you want a fine grind be prepared to process it for some time on the order of 20 minutes. Someone stopped me because he detected a burning smell from the food processor.
I put some on a celery stalk – it’s awesome. Didn’t add any sweetener to it but the savoriness of it is what I like most.
In other news, packing the house up for the big move. Dear non existent deity – 12+ years in one place and you really do have a lot of stuff to pack. The bookshelves alone are 20 boxes.
