How to make homemade almond butter

Cassandra Schowengerdt, my coworker who made homemade peanut butter, recently tried the same with almonds and had fantastic results.

She started with plain almonds, and turned them into almond butter using a 14-cup food processor. You just process them until they're smooth and creamy.

If you're hoping to make a certain amount of almond butter, double that amount in actual almonds when you start.

Also, Cassandra recommends that you don't fill your food processor more than half full, otherwise, the almonds won't get smooth enough. (She overfilled and had to remove half of the mixture, smooth out what was left and then finish the rest separately.)
