method

    Add almonds and salt to a food processor. Process for 10 to 20 minutes, stopping to wipe down sides periodically, until the almonds are smooth and creamy. Note: the process will go through several stages. First the almonds will become almond meal, then they will start to thicken into a larger ball, after that they will start to become smooth. Blend longer to achieve the very rich, creamy texture of almond butter. Please be sure to use only a food processor to make almond butter. Even a strong commercial blender or Vitamix will not process the nuts properly, possibly burning them and ruining the blender.  The addition of any liquid (such as vanilla extract) will greatly decrease the shelf life of your almond butter.  Good additives are cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger.
