Roasted Hazelnut Butter

This sweet custom butter recipe creates a fine balance of country style nuttiness and spreadable goodness. It’s like Nutella without the look and consistency of auto yard mud.

4 ounces of fresh hazelnuts
1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon of lemon zest

Bring the butter just to the softening point.

Roast the hazelnuts in a preheated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove the skin after they cool down a bit. Chop them into small pieces or blend half chopped with half crushed.

In a storage crock or bowl that can be covered tightly, mix the hazelnuts with the butter. Add the lemon zest and store in the fridge.

Goes well with any bread or breakfast style rolls or muffins. Excellent for waiting around a noon time grill.

  1. Thankyou ! Thankyou ! Thankyou ! These are AMAZING !!!Just gone Gluten Free Vegan you may just make me raw too, at this rate Mind you, I blitzed in a bar of Lindt 70% as well, so not colmeetlpy raw And its too rich (never thought I’d be saying that !) Next time will get some of the good raw cacao and use that instead.This is the sort of recipe that shows people how abundant and delicious vegan food can be. So often people think that Vegan food is dry, grittily wholesome and unappetising. These are moist and delicious the best propaganda for living well as well as ethically !!Thankyou again !!Cheers !Molly
