    Almond butter/ground question

    Right one for the experts....


    Gonna pick up one of the giant bags of almonds how do I make almond butter and ground almonds? Do I need a hardcore processor or will my ken wood do? Also do they need to be blanched or can I use the brown ones x

    Brown ones are perfect for almond butter and also fine for ground if you don't mind the finished product being brownish instead if white.

    I have made ground almonds in a normal food processor, I just pulsed it until it was the texture I wanted.

    Almond butter, I haven't tried in the fp - the Internet seems to suggest that you can (and that it will take awhile, so be patient) but I think some people here have had trouble. I'd suggest using warmed (raw or toasted) almonds so they release the oil better, resting your processor if it seems to be getting hot, and adding a bit of melted coconut oil to help things along.

    Let us know how it goes!

    I haven't got the patience to do it myself so I always buy it.

    Let me know how you get on with making the almond butter.

    I make it all the time in my mini ken wood fp. It takes about 10 mins so persevere. You don't need to add anything to it. It goes through a couple of stages. Crumby. Then doughy. This a a good stage. At this point don't give up as any minute after that stage it releases its own natural oils and turns into a creamy butter
