- 3 cups raw almonds
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt, optional
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spread almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes, until golden and fragrant, stirring halfway through.
Immediately add warm almonds to the food processor, with a S-blade. Let it run for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until desired consistency. Stop and scrape down the sides with a spatula every 5 minutes or to incorporate. Add butter to a glass jar with lid and refrigerate.
