I'm not going to lie. Days upon days of nothing planned, doing nothing, being bored- that drives me insane. But the once in a while day to relax- oh yeh!
That's not the only thing making me smile from ear to ear today though. Oh no! What do you get when you pulverize the living daylights out of a food that is technically considered a fruit, composed of a hard shell and a seed, that we more commonly know as nuts, to a smooth, creamy, spreadable consistency? You get excellence. Impeccable, exquisite, faultless excellence. Or in other words, nut butter :)
It only came to my attention recently that I have never, not once, posted about making my own nut butter. Scandalous!
Luckily, today for your very own eyes to take in, I have finally put my words in action and created one of my absolute favourite nut butters.
I'll give you a hint, it starts with 'C' and ends in 'ashew butter'
You guessed it! CASHEW BUTTER! There was a big bag of raw unsalted cashews this week at the grocery store, so I pounced and proceeded to make a masterpiece:
Step1. of making nut butters/ jams/ pickles etc. is to sterilise your jar:
As for the nut butter? That was just a 500g bag of raw unsalted cashews popped in a food processor and processed!
That cashew butter though...
What about you?
Have you ever made your own nut butter?
Favourite type of nut to butter-ise?
Sweet potatoes + --------? I think my favourite will always be sweet potatoes and almond butter, however cashew butter comes pretty close!
That's it from me today friends! I hope you all have an absolutely lovely Sunday, relax if you need to relax and of course, eat something delicious!! Bye for now! :D
