Ooh, that sounds really interesting! How did you do it? Just walnuts in a blender-thingie, og did you put anything else in there, too? smile.gif

It was my first time so I did not want to go fancy.  I put in walnut, salt, light olive oil (it was all I have but any vegetable oil will do) a dash of cinamon and honey to make it a little sweet. I adjusted the flavor as I went (as in did not follow a recipie).  And then I just blended it until it turned into a spreadable goop!  It turned out really well.  It is great with apple slices.  It is wonderful with bread, crackers.  Anything.  I have heard of people soaking walnuts over night, then toasting it to dry and then blending it.  I did it on the spur of the moment so no time for all of that.  Anyway, try it if you have a bit of time and a good food procesor smile.gif


I am gonna try almonds next.
