Honey Vanilla Almond Nut Butter

4 cups roasted almonds
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons peanut oil

Blend almonds in food processor until creamy.  This may take scraping the bowl down several times.  They will get grainy and very dry first, but then the natural oils will be released and it will be fantastically creamy.

Add salt, vanilla, and honey.  Process until smooth.  The honey will thicken up the mixture, add peanut oil one tablespoon at a time.  Continue adding oil until it is the consistency that is perfect for you.

Serve on bread, fruit, or eat straight out of the jar!
