Homemade nut butter made with walnuts as an alternative to peanut butter
Essential Ingredient Nuts
Prep Time 4minutes
Total Time 4minutes
Place the walnuts in the work bowl of a food processor fitted with the regular cutting blade. Process the nuts. After about 30 seconds it will begin to resemble graham cracker crumbs. After about 45 seconds stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl
Continue processing. After about 1-1/2 minutes, the ground nuts will come together into a ball. Taste the nut butter and add the seasonings, adjusting as you see fit. Some people like a sweeter or saltier product. Make it the way you like it.
Pulse the nut butter, taste, and adjust the seasonings if needed, and continue to pulse until it reaches the desired consistency.
Store your nut butter covered (a glass jar works for me) in the refrigerator.
