All dry nuts can be ground into a buttery paste called nut butter, which has multiple uses from breakfast to dessert. Roasting nuts before grinding them into nut butter adds a depth of flavor.
Basic, Homemade Nut Butter Recipe
1. Place nut pieces in a food processor. Add salt and honey, if using.
2. Process on low speed at first, then faster, until a mass pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Some nuts become butter in less than a minute; some take several minutes.
3. Store in an airtight covered container in the fridge. Makes 1 cup.
