Brazil nuts come from a South American tree

I found some brazil nuts(see picture) lurking in the bottom of our refrigerator and decided to see if I could make brazil nut butter. Obviously you can, but is it any good? The answer to that question is  a big yes! In case you were wondering, the title is the acronym for a brazil nut butter and jelly sandwich, which I think would be a delicious use for your homemade butter. Feel free to use maple syrup instead of honey, or to add chocolate/cocoa powder for a twist.


Brazil Nut Butter

1 1/2 cups brazil nuts

1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons honey(or maple syrup)

Grind brazil nuts in a food processor until mealy. Gradually add the honey and pulse until the mixture resembles a coarse peanut butter. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
