How To Make Cashew Butter – A How To Photo Tutorial

Have you ever made your own nut butter?  I have made this chocolate spread and this one, but not just straight nut butter.  Until now.  And have I been missing out!  And so are you if you haven’t tried it. Making cashew butter was so easy and it so delicious!  And what’s better?  It only has ONE, that’s right, ONE ingredient.  That’s healthy folks.  No added oils, sugars, emulsifiers, and other food-like stuff.

Granted, you do need one piece of equipment and that is a high powered food processor.  If you do not have one yet and think you would never use it, you would be surprised.  I use mine WAY more than I ever thought I would.

All you need is about 10 minutes of your time.  Here are some photos to show you how. (A few are a bit blurry..the lighting was terrible on that dark, gray day).

You need is a high powered food processor and cashews.

Blog-Cashew Butter1Place your cashews into the processor.

Blog-Cashew Butter5Stop the processor to scrap the sides.  Do this more than once.  If you need to give your processor a rest, do so.

Blog-Cashew Butter8Keep processing and all of a sudden, POOF!  It will become a smooth butter that swirls around the sides of the container.  Process until it is your desired smoothness.

    I don’t refrigerate peanut butter after opening. (I don’t eat it, but my son does.)
    Does the cashew butter need to be refrigerated?

      If you eat it fast enough, probably not. I just think it stays better longer. Most commercial jars of nut butters (like almond etc) call for refrigeration after opening.

    Do you use raw or roasted nuts for this?
