almond butter

i made some almond butter a few days ago, and let me tell you, its heaven! and easy as pie!

first, lay 3 cups of raw almonds flat on a baking tray, and roast at 175 celsius (350 f).
then, wait 10-12 minutes as a glorious smell fills your kitchen! let them cool and try reallllly hard not to munch on a handful while you wait (i may or may not have been so patient)...

then, pop them into a food processor or vitamix (my dream machine!) with some oil if you'd like, a couple tablespoons or so. i used rapeseed, but next time i won't...i think it would be just fine without it...let iblend up nice and smooth, or you can stop it sooner if you like a more chunky spread (did i just say chunky? shudder).

then, pour into a clean jar, and try not to eat it all at once! 

i had some with jam on homemade bread. yummmm.
