    Nut/Seed Butter...


    All jokes aside, I've been wanting to give some of these a try.

    Natural Peanut butter is good stuff, but there are a lot of other options out there...

    Walnut butter
    Hazelnut butter
    Peacan butter
    Macademia butter
    Almond butter
    Cashew butter
    Hazelnut butter
    Peanut butter
    Pumpkin seed butter
    Sunflower seed butter
    Soybean butter
    Tahini / Seasame Seed butter

    I've only ever had Peanut...but recently bought Almond butter to replace it once it has run out.

    Anyone ever try the rest? Can you give an opinion on it's taste/texture and price?

    Almond butter is the best.

    Tahini plain is down right disgusting.

    Almond and cashew butter are pretty good. They're expensive though. Almond butter is easily $10 a jar.

    I made walnut butter, but walnuts are kinda bitter-tasting. I mixed in some maple syrup and it tasted pretty good.

    If you look in the recipe's forum, I have a thread that tells you how to make your own natty PB. You can easily replace peanuts with other nuts to make it.

    I am partial to cashew butter and almond butter, but the price makes them a treat instead of a staple.

It was damn good with cottage cheese, I'd imagine it'd be nice with some rye crackers or just about anything, even on its own!

    Find a Whole Foods or Wild Oats market, in the bulk section you can make your own nut butters or get it out of their bulk tubs. I'm pretty sure its cheaper than 9$/jar too.

    Personally I like Peanut, Almond, Cashew and Sesame Seed.
