Amandalice (homemade almond spread)

Course Breakfast
Cuisine American, Chinese, French
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 2 jars

Ingredients

  • 600 g almonds
  • 2 tbsp blond sugar
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 25 g honey
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Grill the almonds in the oven at 180°C (350°F) for 15 minutes. 

  2. Leave almonds to cool down a bit.

  3. Put almonds in a food processor and mix until it reaches a purée texture.  This procedure takes time and patience.  Stop once in a while to scrape down the almonds with a spatule as they tend to pile up on the side of the bowl.  You might need to do this up to 7 times, depending on each food processor.  

  4. DO NOT ADD ANY OTHER INGREDIENTS UNTIL YOU'VE REACHED THE PURÉE TEXTURE !

  5. Add both sugars, honey, salt, and vanilla extract and mix again.

  6. Put the spread into a covered jar and can be kept for at least a month in the refrigerator, but at my home, it never lasts that long.
