Nut Butter Business Is Booming Thanks To My Cuisinart Food Processor

Nut Butter Business Is Booming Thanks To My Cuisinart Food Processor

My kids love nut butters, from good old peanut butter, to almond butter, and of course, Nutella. The list is longer than that, but I’d say those are the 3 I used to purchase the most of. These things can get expensive, and to be honest I was hoping the kids would lose interest in them over time. No such luck. 

It all started out as a way to save money, but the situation eventually took a turn. I was researching how I could save money on nut butters, and I found that a lot of people started making them at home themselves. The key to making this happen was using a food processor.

I had never been much of a food processor user; maybe a couple of times at my parent’s house while I was helping them make things. I never considered that I could make homemade nut butters, or really ever thought about anything that I could make with one. I was pleasantly surprised at all of the information that I found. 

I did extensive research about food processors, so I was completely sure that I was making the right decision. I was fully committed to making this happen, and I wanted to avoid any issues. I made the decision to purchase the Cuisinart Custom 14 Food Processor from KitchenWorksInc. From all of the information that I gathered, it seemed that I couldn’t go wrong with that choice.  

There was time to plan before the food processor arrived, so the kids and I sat down to pick out some recipes to try. We were of course going with the regular peanut butter, almond butter, homemade Nutella and I desperately wanted to try pecan butter. I had never had it before, but pecans were my favorite nut and something told me I would love it. 

The day before the food processor arrived, we took a trip to the store together to gather all of the ingredients that we would need. We had a membership to a place where we could buy in bulk, and that was really helpful. While it was still a bit of an up front expense, I could see how over time it would be a cheaper option. 

The next day we received our food processor and the kids were super excited. I was too, but for a totally different reason. They were excited to make their own nut butters and I was excited for the savings. We got to work almost immediately. 

We made each nut butter that we planned on making, doing the smaller batches first, which were the pecan butter and the hazelnut spread. Those were definitely the more expensive of all of the nuts, so we wanted to start small. 

Then we went for the almond butter and peanut butter. We made fairly large batches of those. We all participated, and we each gave our opinion on what was missing or which one needed something else. We got each recipe just where we wanted it. We didn’t expect that on the first try. We got really lucky. 

To condense the overall story, we made this a regular occurrence in our home. We started giving them to family members and friends, and eventually I was encouraged to start selling them. I decided to give it a shot, and was really surprised at how well they did. People like to buy things that are locally made, and when they started selling them in our local markets they really took off. 

A lot of great things happened. We saved money on nut butters, my kids weren’t getting all of the gross preservatives that one does by consuming the commercial products, and I created a really awesome side gig that brings in a nice amount of income. None of this would have happened if I didn’t take the chance on making the nut butters at home with a Cuisinart food processor.
