Homemade stuff is really a joy - both the process and the outcome. Finally got the chance to work on #thepeanutbutterproject and here's to share with you :)
First you start by making sure you have all the right ingredients. Roasted cashews (you can use peanuts, or whatever nuts you prefer), some salt, butter and honey.
First, blend some cashews into small chunks and then set them aside. I later added them back into the blend to keep em' chunky :)
Then blend the rest of the cashews.
Add butter, honey and a tiny pinch of salt (cause roasted nuts usually are salted already). I won't say how much but I just kept adding, and tasting, and checking the consistency of the texture. And keep blending.
Till you get like a paste like this and it's about done! Add back the chunky bits and hit the processor one more time.
Then spread it on~ nyams. It's a little dry because I didn't add any oil. I thought it'll make the whole paste oily instead of smooth like Skippy.
And last but not least... TADA! できた！
Homemade is good. While the texture and flavour might not be something familiar (like Skippy) but imagine minus-ing all those unnecessary additives from your daily diet, one small step at a time? Spend some quality time this weekend with quality produce :) Enjoy your own cashewnut butter today! ♥
