We all love the nutty butters like peanut and almond butters. But we get them at very high prices in India. So nut butters still remain a delicacy denied to most of the population. But did you know that you can make your own nut butters at home?
Make Your Own Nut Butter
- Start with sprinkling a little salt over your nuts and roasting them in the oven for 10-12 minutes at moderate heat.
- Now transfer to a blender (after they cool down) and start to blend. You will notice a coarse podery texture after a few minutes, which will then turn to a fine powdery texture. Keep going. Nuts have natural oils, which will now begin to b released. After around 15-20 minutes of running the blender, you will see the texture we are looking for.
- You may add salt, honey, pepper, chopped nuts, cocoa, cinnamn etc as per your preference.
You can make butter out of peanuts, almonds, cashews, pistachios, walnuts, pecans, pine nuts, and even seeds like sunflower seeds, papaya seeds and sesame seeds.
