The whole reason I bought Hazelnut trees was so I could have my own Hazelnut butter. You can make butters or spreads with various seeds and nuts.
This is a general nut butter recipe. Feel free to play around with it and see what you create!
Or you Can do it with a butter machine
Nuts of your choosing
salt - or additives you would like in the butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
place nuts on a baking sheet
Roast for 8-12 minutes or until fragrant and golden
If roasting hazelnuts, remove the skins
Add to food processor or blender (this will take 10-12 minutes or more - be patient) *It should go from whole nuts, to meal, to clumps, to creamy butter
