Nut Butter
This Recipe:
Makes a scant cup

Adapted from River Cottage Every Day, by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

1 ½ cups raw, unsalted nuts (we used almonds, then threw in some extra pecans), such as cashews, almonds, hazelnuts and/or peanuts

3 to 4 tablespoons canola or sunflower oil (we probably used 5—of grapeseed oil)

1 to 2 teaspoons honey

½ teaspoon coarse sea salt



Pulse the nuts in a food processor until finely ground. With the motor running, drizzle in oil until the mixture becomes a creamy paste, then add the honey and salt. Add a few more nuts just at the end of processing if you’d like a crunchy nut butter. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
