  • Keep blending. If the food processor seems to need to have the butter sticking to the sides, open up the lid and scrape down from time to time.
  • Keep blending for 6-8 minutes. As you watch the sides, you will see the butter change many times until it becomes smooth like a peanut butter appears.
  • Remove and place in jar.
