Save 50% by making your own nut butters & pralines

Nut/ seed butters can be made in your food processor, but that will only take you so far. The food processor won’t turn them into silky smooth butter and it also won’t grind sweeteners, like coconut sugar, into a smooth paste either. Adding liquid sweeteners to butter doesn’t work because the nut butter seizes up against the moisture… the grinder is the only way to make silky butters that can also be sweetened and made into praline pastes.

What you’ll learn…

Making Nut & Seed Butters

As the price of all goods is increasing, you can save yourself tons of money by buying nuts in bulk and making butters yourself. Not all nuts and seeds grind the same. There are little tricks to each one that you can learn over time by trial and error, or come to my class and learn it all in one go.

Praline Paste 

For the sake of my specific area of work, let’s define praline paste. In traditional terms, praline paste are nuts/seeds that are caramelised with white sugar and then ground into a butter.

In my culinary dictionary, they are roasted or activated nuts/seeds that are made into a smooth paste with a dry sweetener and cocoa butter or chocolate. They can then be set in a silicone mould and eaten as is or dipped in chocolate. They can be used as a filling in a chocolate bar, layers in bonbons or added as a texture to chocolate barks.

In the class book, you’ll receive a few of my favourite praline recipes that use different processes to achieve a beautiful rich praline.

Flavour Pairing 

When making nut/seed butters and pralines, you can have a lot of fun with flavour pairing. In the class book, I have included flavour pairings for all nuts and seeds.

Grinding Times

Each nut and seed requires different ways to start the batch and different grinding times and care notes during the grind. I have included notes on this in the class book.
