One of the best things to spread on your bread first thing in the morning is a homemade nut butter.

You can indulge guilt-free and it’s very good for you.

Choose good-quality, very fresh raw macadamias,
peanuts or cashews from our Out Of Africa range.

If you like, you can soak or sprout the nuts first.

If you do this, make sure they have completely dried before processing them.

Roasting the nuts first is another way to vary the flavour of your butter, giving you a deeper taste and creamier texture.

Makes 1 jar
Half a Kg nuts of your choice Raw honey (optional)Water (optional).

Process the nuts in a food processor until you obtain a creamy paste that the blade moves smoothly through.

At first you will need to stop frequently to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl with a spatula.

As the nuts are whizzing round, you can drizzle in a little raw honey or water to help turn it into an emulsified butter.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge
