How to Make It
  1. Preheat the oven to 140°C/275°F/Gas Mark 1. Tip the nuts into the bowl of a food processor with the salt. Grind to small pieces. Whizz, taking a rest every minute or so, until the nuts warm up and begin to release their oils.
  2. Continue processing until a creamy, silky nut butter forms. Add the vanilla extract and process once more to combine.
  3. Wash two 225-g/8-oz lidded jars and rinse thoroughly, then dry with a clean tea towel or kitchen paper. Put the jars on a baking tray and heat in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Sterilize the lids by boiling them in water for 5 minutes, then dry them on kitchen paper.
  4. Using a clean spoon, fill the jars with the nut butter and cover with the lids. Store in the refrigerator to preserve the unsaturated oils in the butter. Remove from the refrigerator 1 hour before using so the butter will spread more easily. It will keep in the refrigerator for several weeks.
