Serves: As much as you like
  • Shelled nuts or seeds (your choice of type; ¼ cup nuts makes about 2 tablespoons nut butter)
  • Oil, as needed (optional)
  • Sea salt, to taste*
  1. Spread the nuts out on a baking sheet and roast at 350ºF for about 15 minutes. Stir the nuts occasionally to ensure even roasting.
  2. Allow the nuts to cool for at least 10 minutes, then grind them in a spice grinder or food processor until the oils begin to release and the nuts form a paste. If it is too thick, you can add a touch of oil for a smoother consistency.
  3. At the end of the process mix in sea salt to taste and store the nut butter in clean airtight glass jars. Keep any opened jars refrigerated.
The amount of salt required is generally about ¼ to ½ teaspoon per one pound of nuts.
