Whacking Good Butters and Spreads

Cashew nut butter - delicious in place of butter or margarine

1 Cup raw cashews
1 1/2 teaspoon of salt - Celtic is best
1/4 cup cold pressed olive oil ( I have also used rice bran oil)
Enough water to cover cashew nuts in the blender

Method: Put all ingredients into blend and blend until creamy and smooth.

Apple Butter6 Apples chopped and peeled + 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
A handful of raisins + 3 Tablespoons water

Put all ingredients into a pan and simmer until water is absorbed.
Puree in blender till smooth
Store in the fridge and use as butter - its also delicious as a topping over desserts like apple crisp or peach crisp - experiment !
