DIRECTIONS

  • To roast the almonds:
  • Spread them in a thin layer on a baking sheet.
  • Bake at 300ºF for about 20 minutes.
  • Stir a couple of times to assure even roasting.
  • Making the butter:
  • Combine the almonds and salt in a food processor, blender, meat grinder or nut butter machine and process until the nuts are finely ground.
  • Add the oil and continue processing until the almond butter reaches your desired degree of smoothness, adding more oil if necessary.
  • For chunky butter, stir in 1/4 cup chopped almonds. Store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator.
  • Variations:
  • Substitute Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts or macadamia nuts for the almonds.
  • Or combine two or more of these nuts in any proportion.
