Honey Cashew Butter (Plain Or Crunchy) Recipe @pinch

Rich, smooth, salty, and sweet, this homemade cashew butter is divine. It would be delicious on a slice of toasted bread, served with some fruit or smeared on a graham cracker. Enjoy it however you'd eat peanut butter. It makes two half havepint jars have give one as a gift and save one for yourself. I have bought cashew butter at the grocery store, but do not like the price for the amount you receive. I decided to try making my own. I can not eat peanut butter anymore because I was diagnosed with a peanut allergy after having an anaphylactic reaction this past year. I can have all other nuts except walnuts which also came back positive on my allergy panel. I love nuts and peanut butter, so I have been trying new recipes to substitute peanut butter with other butters.
