1. Soak your raw almonds overnight
2. Put a manageable amount in a food processor and press "on"
3. Take breaks as your food processor gets too hot, and scrape down the sides as nut butter accumulates
4. Be patient
That's really all there is to it. The process is not the difficult part...it's the TIME! Making almond butter takes forever, especially when using soaked and dehydrated almonds. I suspect the soaking process must leach some of the natural oils out of the almonds. I base this hypothesis on being able to see oil-y spots in the water as I drain the nuts.
