Recipe of the month: Almond Spread

Almond Spread (keeps for 14 days)

Ingredients:

  • 2-4 cups of almonds

  • 1-2 tbs olive oil

  • 1 tbs honey

Methods:

  • Add nuts to food processor and process nuts to a fine powder (2-10 minutes), at this time, add the oil. Continue processing until it becomes smooth and creamy, stopping to scrap down the sides of the bowel every minute or two.
     

  • Continue processing – as the mixture continues to warm, it should turn creamy and smooth and move around very easily inside the bowl of your processor. It may take 15-20minutes until its totally creamy, depending on the strength and size of your food processor.
     

  • Add honey at the very end. Enjoy!
