  • 1 cup almonds

  1. Make sure the foodprocessor is quite clean and dry. This will increase the shelf life of the finished butter. Make sure the container is quite clean as well. Work as if you were making preserves.
  2. Put the almonds in the food processor. Set it to a high setting and let it sip away.

  3. Let it work it's magic until it has a smooth consistency. The butter will start to come together - give it a bit more time until it comes together completely.

  4. If the butter isn't quite smooth enough, add a bit of neutral oil.
  5. Add salt and any other dry spices you want. Do NOT add honey or anything with water, it will ruin the shelf life of your finished butter.
