roasted almond butter

i have been stumbling over a lot of almond milk, butter and cracker recipes lately as well as a lot of recipes that contain almond milk. and yesterday i finally gave the almond butter a try. it is as easy as can be and has only two ingredients. here is what you need for a small test batch:

  • 1 cup of almonds
  • a pinch of salt
  1. roast the almonds at about 150°C (300°F) for about 20 min. stir now and then to prevent burning.
  2. remove them from the oven and let them cool down for about 5 min.
  3. add a bit at a time to a food processor and process for about 10 min. don't give up they will come together and become oily. you should not have to add oil if the almonds were still warm.
  4. now add a bit of salt, sugar or whatever you like.
 my favorite until now is eating it on good sourdough bread with a bit of butter underneath and some honey on top =)
