Help! Nut butter

Recommended Posts

I decided to try to make nut butter. I've tried a blender (didn't work).

Now I have a juicer, sort of like a Champion. The instructions say to process the nuts and then mix the 'nut meal' with oil to get nut butter.

 

Well, I did that and it's not really nut butter-y.

It reminds me of ground almonds mixed with oil

 

I used blanched almonds, tried again and this time the nuts made a sort of a stickier paste, that I could probably form into a ball...

 

But how do you get NUT BUTTER, like the sort you find in the store. Some I've seen (commercial varieties) don't even have added oil, and they are smooth and creamy. How do they get like that?

 

Anyone? I was so excited about making my own but it's not really happening.

But why can't I make it WITHOUT oil?

 

Like the grinder in the healthfood store, you put in peanuts and you get PB.

 

You can buy almond butter with no oil and it's a liquid.

 

If I add oil it doesn't even come out like the kind I can buy. I don't get it??

My experience with making nut butter:

 

Get yourself a Champion Juicer, it provides the capability of making terrific nut butters. Do a google for The Champion Juicer. I believe they are located in Lodi, California.

I am overseas, and have one that is idle becuase I can not use it. 230v vs. 110. I would sell it. It's like new.
