To make almond butter, gather 1-2 cups of almonds (roasted or raw, depending on the flavor you want.)
Place the almonds in the blender on high for 10 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of sea salt before blending.
Every 2 minutes, stop the blender and push down the almond chunks from the walls with a spatula. Add more sea salt, to taste, if necessary.
Once the almonds are completely crushed and in a consistent, liquid state, pour the almond butter into a small jar or airtight container.
Store these containers in the refrigerator so the butter can settle and thicken
Homemade almond butter should keep for at least a month if you store it properly, while store-bought varieties will be good for 3-6 months.
