In This Recipe
- blitz the almonds in a food processor until they take on the consistency of a nut butter. you will need to stop and scrape the sides. how quickly they become butter depends on the power of your machine.
- stone the dates and tear into pieces. add these to the nut butter along with the olive oil. continue to blitz until you get a smooth consistency. then add the salt.
- put into a jar. spread liberally on toast or brioche. dollop onto yoghurt. or just it eat it straight from the jar.
