A few weeks ago I made myself praline butter. It was so delicious and incredible that it kicked off my new obsessive trend: homemade nut butters.
These are super easy, super yummy, in some cases cheaper than buying them at the store, and in many cases quite a bit healthier. Also, there are way more possibilities for variety if you’re making these at home than if you just buy what they carry in stores.
Do you have a food processor (or maybe even a blender)? Good! Do you have nuts? Great! That’s all you need to get started making your own nut butters.
Let me start by saying that there is nothing healthy about this. It’d be like calling carrot cake healthy because there are carrots in it and carrots are a vegetable; it just doesn’t work that way.
Let me second start by saying that if you don’t know what pralines are, I’m sorry. You should get yourself to the south (Charleston, Savannah, and New Orleans are good options) and get one as soon as possible because you are seriously missing out. I regret the first 22 years of my life that were tragically pralineless.
And now that we’re covered the basics, it’s time to get serious about praline butter.
