Even though it was a million degrees outside today, I was in the mood to do some baking. After cranking out several dozen cookies and 2 large chocolate zucchini cakes, I decided to make a batch of homemade almond butter using this recipe I found via Pinterest. Let me tell you, it is oh so good.
I substituted some pure vanilla for the vanilla beans, and made a batch with just almonds and sea salt as well. I got four 125 ml/4 oz jars from approximately 6 cups of almonds. I dressed up the jars with a wee bit of fabric and jute string, with a handwritten label, for gifting.
