Pecan Butter

 There are several mature pecan trees on the place and this year two of them produced.  We picked up 60+ pounds of nuts.  After sharing some we ended up getting 45 pounds cracked.  I've been shelling pecans for days.  Thought we'd give pecan nut butter a try.  Turns out it's super easy.  Simply pecans and a tiny bit of salt.


3 cups of pecans ready to toast

350 degree oven for about 10 minutes - get them just a little toasty

add a tiny bit of salt and blend, for a while...

very good.  and with the price of peanut butter skyrocketing -we're switching.
