Raw Cashew Butter
Serves: Yields just a little under 2 cups.
  1. Add all ingredients to the bowl of your food processor and process for a very long time, until nice and smooth.
  2. At some point, you will have to scrape the sides fairly often, and your nuts will turn into a very thick and crumbly paste before eventually starting to release their oils and turn into nut butter.
  3. Be patient and resist the urge to add any form of liquid. Just keep going, it will eventually happen.
  4. From beginning to end, this might take a good 25 minutes of active processing, so it is a good idea to give your food processor a few minutes break from time to time.
  5. Keep your nut butter in Mason type glass jars or other air tight containers
To make the vanilla powder, what I do is I keep all my scraped vanilla beans and leave them to out to dry. When I have about a dozen or so, I grind them in my coffee grinder along with 2 or 3 whole vanilla beans and turn that into a vanilla powder.
