Do you love almond butter but not the price of it in the grocery stores? Make it yourself! All you need is almonds and a food processor. I have a blender with a food processor attachment which isn’t very large so I made two batches to yield the quantity shown. OK – let’s get started!
- 5 cups Almonds
I bought a 3 lb bag of almonds at Costco.
Use the “S”-shaped blade for this process.
Place 2 1/2 cups of almonds in the food processor.
Secure the lid and start! WARNING: it’s loud and since it takes about 25-30 minutes to process it will also get HOT. This is completely normal.
After the initial grinding the “pulp” starts to stick together and get clumpy. Stop it after a few minutes and pull it off the sides of the bowl then resume.
Just when you think that this is a never-ending process and you fear you’ve made a terrible mistake or that you’re going to burn out the motor (my anxiety hit around the 20 minute mark)……
It gets creamy 🙂
I paid nearly $10 for this little jar in the store….NEVER AGAIN!
Keep it in the refrigerator.
