Sunbutter

Standard

Ingredients:

scant 1 cup sunflower seeds

salt

Directions and Notes:

1. Toast the sunflower seeds for about 5 minutes at 400 degrees, being careful not to let them burn.

2. Let the seeds cool for a few minutes, then put them into a food processor and process for 5-10 minutes until they give off oils and become creamy. This takes a while, and for the first few minutes it may be necessary to frequently open the food processor and scrape the sides to keep it blending.

3. Add salt to taste.

This recipe yields somewhere between 1/3 and ½ cup sunbutter. Homemade peanut butter is still our favorite, but this is really good for something different, especially if you like sunflower seeds!
