Like fresh nut milk, once you make your own you will never go back!
3 cups freshly roasted unsalted nuts (such as almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts or even sunflower seeds for the nut averse)
- Place nuts on baking sheet, toast for 10 mins on middle rack in a 300 F oven, wiggle them around and then toast again for another 8-10 mins.
- Let the nuts cool until they can be handled comfortably. Blend for 1 min on high with high-speed blender. Use tamper or spatula to push the nuts into the blades to help keep the butter going until it is smooth. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator
***Roasting the nuts helps to reduces physic acid and helps combat rancidity. It also makes them tasty and brings out natural oils for the blending.
