How to make nut butter:

1)Get a good food processor.
2)Put on the super sharp mixing, pulverizing blade.
3)Dump in various nuts.
4)Turn on for 5-20 minutes.

Other tips:
Blanched nuts process faster than unblanched.
Roasted nuts process faster than raw.
Walnuts are very oily so they get done pretty quickly.
Raw almonds take the longest (20 minutes for 1 lb).

Mix and match as desired. I like pecans and walnuts with a smidge of macadamias.

Adding 1 square of 100% chocolate or a TBS of cocoa or two can make it chocolatey.

Dried coconut can be used to make coconut butter.

I feel the other tips should be a must, always use blanched, and always roast :)

Add in some salt now and then is good too.

Great idea on the chocolate add, never thought about it. Good call.

i've done this for a while now and absolutely love it. almonds/brazil/cashews in equal quantities is a winner. mixing in some spices (nutmeg, cardamom, cinnamon) adds heaps to the flavour too

and remember to store them in the fridge

My favourite: Mix some honey with 2-3 Tablespoons of hot water, until it turns out quite liquid and mix it in. This, together with a good amount of salt --> Heaven!
