Apparently I was a good girl this year because Santa did a fantastic job with my gifts! One of those gifts was this beauty:
I have wanted a food processor for SO long.
Now I just had to decide what to make to christen my brand new food processor. I immediately went to Ashley’s website Edible Perspective. I knew that she has made a ton of nut butter recipes, and that is definitely something that I couldn’t make without a food processor. (also her photography is GORGEOUS. Seriously, even if you aren’t interested in food, go check out her site for the photos.) I had some leftover almonds from the cinnamon almonds that I made, so I knew it would be some kind of almond butter. I ended up choosing her Roasted Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter. You can find the recipe here.
The food processor was amazing. It turned crunchy almonds into smooth butter with ease!
Ease: A-, you do have to roast the almonds first, but really nothing too hard at all. The food processor does all of the work.
Taste: B, I don’t exactly love almonds, but this was pretty good. And super cool that it is something that most people buy in a store and I could make my own!!
Would I make it again? I’m undecided. I didn’t love it, but the Husband actually said that it tasted better than almond butters that he has had from the store, so maybe I will make it again.
Ok, so tell me: What is the best thing that you have used a food processor for?
If you don’t have a food processor, is there a recipe that you are dying to make with a food processor?? For me, it was always Savvy Julie’s Chocolate Hazlenut Spread and now I can make it!! So excited. Definitely in the plans for this weekend. 🙂
