I just bought a KitchenAid food chopper and would like to know whether to process the cashews on "chop" or "purée" to make cashew butter. My recipe includes roasted cashews, sunflower oil, and salt. Does anyone know what setting to use to get nice creamy cashew butter?
I based my answer on the fact that nut butter is a pureed food. You may have to stop a time or two and scrape down the sides of the bowl to get a homogeneous mixture.
Makes sense. The problem I had with my Cuisinart chopper is that my nut butters were never puréed. They always came out a bit chunky no matter what settings I used. I'm looking forward to trying the KitchenAid because it got great reviews.
