Homemade Nutbutter and Applesauce!


In line with my goal to make more homemade goodies this year, I whipped up some nutbutter and apple/peach sauce last week.  I’m starting slow, okay!  I grabbed bags of nuts that I had left over for the nutbutter.  I used hazelnuts and almonds.  Since both these nuts are slightly dry, I added just a drizzle of olive oil for a creamy consistency.  I threw the nuts in my Vitamix and spun that sucker until the batch looked spreadable.  It turned out a dark, rich color with flecks of deep brown.  The apple and peach sauce was easy too and a few apples go a long way!  I cored and steamed about 6 apples and then threw them in the Vitamix after they cooled a bit.  Save that water from steaming for smoothies!  Then I added a freezer bag full of sliced peaches leftover from summer.  I kept spinning until the peels were ground up so Baby could swallow it easily.  The batch made two large jars full!  I keep adding the sauce mix to other things – hot cereal, yogurt, puree veggies.  I need to try an applesauce muffin recipe next.  Can’t wait to try some other homemade goodies this week!
