Cashew butter

Cashew butter
Nuts were half price today at Woolies. :) 
So I've stocked up and finally had a go at making my own cashew butter.  I love the stuff!  I buy it most weeks from the supermarket ($6.49 for a 250gram jar).
If you can get the nuts for a reasonable price, it's much cheaper (and fun!) to make your own.

Here's how:
  • Put cashew nuts into food processor.
  • Process on high until nuts become a smooth butter.  
This took about 10-15 minutes in my food processor, stopping to scrape down the sides from time to time.
At first the nuts don't look like they are going to ever break down into butter, but stick with it, it will happen. :)  Don't be tempted to add any oil; it will turn into cashew butter eventually.

I put 600 grams of dry roasted cashews in and finished with a full 420ml jar of cashew butter.

Next time I'll try the hazelnuts! :)
