I got inspired today to try my hand at homemade almond butter. At $5+ a jar, it gets costly around here with the amount of nut butters we go through. I found a recipe here and it sounded simple enough, and didn't REQUIRE a Vitamix or something fancy. My Cuisinart did smoke at the end, though. Hmm. This is easy and delicious. I ended up adding 2 extra tbsp of oil (!) and a tbsp of honey to the liquid. It's a grainier texture than store-bought, but just as good if not better. We had it with Rocky Mountain Farm's Cherry Jam on homemade (local flour) bread. Oh yeah. Next up, cashew butter.
