Basic Nut Butter
|Roasted nuts||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)|
|Oil||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Sea salt||To Taste|
Place 1 1/2 cups whole or broken nuts in a blender.
Cover and whirl until nuts are finely ground.
Add the oil (amount varies for each kind of nut), a small amount at a time, whirling after each addition.
Add salt to taste and blend 30 seconds, or until very smooth.
Note: Start and stop blender as necessarv and use a spatula to keep all the butter in motion.
The nut mixture is thick, so make nut butters in small batches to avoid overtaxing the blender motor.
