We live in North Carolina and I am a foodie. I love researching and changing recipes to fit my own needs and desires. My posts will be the Stephanie way of cooking so you will probably recognize some things and others might leave you saying that isn't for me but thanks anyway. This will allow me to share something I truly love, food and preparing it in such a way that my family and friends can feel how much I care for them.

My daughter Haley really likes Almond Butter and honey sandwiches. I bought a Costco sized Almond Butter and recently opened and mixed it. The next day we got a notice in the mail from the manufacturer. They were recalling the almond butter because of possible salmonella poisoning. Oh my goodness, my thoughts immediately turned to my dear daughter and her love of almond butter sandwiches in her school lunch. Since I love any reason to try to make a homemade version of food, this was a blessing in disguise. Amazingly I didn't have the right kitchen appliance to make almond butter. But, I have a friend who kindly allowed me to borrow hers. Thank you Leah for letting me use your food processor. This is the simplest recipe EVER!
Beautiful, wonderfully fragrant, and completely fresh and homemade!
3 cups raw Almonds
1 teaspoons Himalayan Pink Salt (or Sea Salt)
Preheat Oven to 350 Fahrenheit
Place almonds on cookie sheets, roast for 10-12 minutes.
Allow almonds to cool for around ten minutes.
Place the almonds in a food processor with salt.
Process the almonds. Stop occasionally to scrape the almonds from the sides.
Keep processing until a smooth paste/butter forms.
Scrape almond butter into a clean lidded jar. Refrigerate, and
