What You Will Need

Do I have to roast the cashews
Nope! Roasting just accentuates the flavor and makes the cashews even easier to process!
Cashews v. Almonds
I used cashews instead of almonds mainly because I wanted the resulting butter to be as creamy as possible and, since it was my first time making it on my own, I thought it would be a little easier to break down into a butter. But you can use almonds if you want, it just might take longer to process.
How to Store Cashew Butter
Cashew Butter can be stored on counter for 3 days or so; longer than that and I would recommend keep in refrigerator.
