nut butters

You know I'm a big fan of the homemade peanut butter. BIG fan. 

I had some leftover nuts this week and we've run out of the above ("we've" being Tilly and I: the boys are vehemently averse to peanut butter of any incarnation.)

So I dumped a variety of nuts into my food processor and made this:

Yes the label may look a little Stepford.

No I'm not apologising. 

The state I'm in I could easily have used it as a facial scrub unless I whacked a label on it. 

(Besides, I have blank labels left over from making coffee labels for Dad's coffee beans.)

Sadly I cannot give you the volumes of different nuts thrown in (please refer to statement about 'state' above. Insomnia. Curse it.)

But damn it's yummy!

If you make it and it works, maybe send me the nut volumes?!

P.S. Apparently there's an "ABC" butter which is excellent – almonds, brasil nuts and cashews. Might try this next time. If I can remember where I put my food processor. Or my brain.

I need a food processor. I don’t think I’ll be able to make this with my kitchen vibrator….whoops, hand blender 😛 xx

Mmmmm. I’m definitely going to try out some macadamia butter. The other day I was making the peanut stuff and kinda forgot about it and it went all lovely and smooth and moist, even without any peanut oil! Oh, it’s so good and I’m never going back.

I reckon I will give this a go (BIG pb fans in this house). My to do list is getting SO huge from reading so many great blogs lately.

honestly, my processor is the most used thing in the kitchen. get one that’s easy to wash so it’s no big deal to get out would be my only advice! I’ve had mine for nearly 10 years now, so it’s not flash, but it goes and goes and it makes making stuff like this + pesto + hummus etc a two minute no-brainer job. (No advertising here, just a fan of the old processor xxx)

I should have said I added a tablespoon or so of oil to this but that’s all – these nuts were oilier than peanuts xxx

Oh, that’d be great for us, we’ve got a peanut allergy in this house!

oh I really like your label!
It’s cute and easy-to-read (better than messy handwriting) and makes eating nut butter seem to be the most fun and exciting thing to do.
