Making nut and seed butters at home is so simple, and the resulting flavors are fresher and more authentic than you’ll get from store bought brands. The sky is the limit when it comes to adding new flavor surprises to your homemade nut and seed butters. In this version we are adding a touch of honey to creamy peanut butter.
Quick Tip: There are 5 distinct stages to the blending process, so be sure to keep blending through all 5. Stage 1: Loud like Thunder. Stage 2: Crumbles. Stage 3: Big Ole Ball (you may need to break it up with a spoon). Stage 4: Dry Butter (keep blending, those oils are about to be released). Stage 5: Soft, Creamy Velvet (you made it! Now give that food processor the night off!)
