Dr. Grandma’s Almond Butter

Dr. Grandpa really enjoyed the ‘roasted’ flavor; he noted that it is not in the commercial brand that we sometimes purchase. Other than the roasted flavor, the other nice thing about making almond butter yourself is that you can control the amount of salt – this recipe is very low in salt.
