It has often been said that says good things come to those who wait. This is my mantra every time I make this recipe for Homemade Almond Butter. Patience is definitely the secret ingredient in this recipe.
It takes about fifteen minutes for the almonds to be processed. The almonds begin their transformation from coarsely chopped to finely chopped, and then, there is a clump that forms. Be patient.
When properly processed, the oils in the almonds will magically be released and before you know it, you have homemade almond butter. Continue to process until you reach the texture you desire. At this stage, you can add honey and/or a pinch of salt. I prefer my homemade almond butter au naturel. Remember to begin the whole process with roasted almonds that are at room temperature.
