HomeMade Coconut Butter
I just made some coconut butter. Andrea Lang posted something on Facebook the other day and I realized I hadn't made any for quite a while.
Homemade Coconut Butter tastes creamy and sweet and good. Inexpensive to make, about $3.50 a 8oz bag.
1 8oz bag of organic, unsweetened coconut flakes made about 1 and 1/2 cups.
Just put the whole bag in food processor using the metal blade and go for about 10 min - scraping the sides every few min. And that's it.
**this will not work with the lower reduced-fat coconut flakes - I learned that the hard way -LOL**
No need to refrigerate, keep in a jar in the cupboard.
In the summer months it stays soft, but in the winter months after sitting for a while It will get a bit hard so just take out what you want to use and microwave for a few seconds.
