I had an abysmal failure in the kitchen yesterday. I was trying to make Cashew Butter so I put the cashews in my Black & Decker food processor, followed by the oil and honey. It looked like it was headed in the right direction but it stayed super thick for some reason. I tried adding some more vegetable oil to thin it out, but after doubling the amount, it didn't get any better.

Just to see what would happen, I decided to add a tablespoon of butter. I was not surprised to find that was a bad idea. The nut butter seized and separated. I was left with a gummy blob in a pool of oil. I tried draining the oil and re-processing it. I also tried toasting the blob to drive out some water, but I think the proteins, or whatever is in the nuts, had permanently coagulated.

On top of that, I think the vegetable oil that I was using went bad. It smelled a bit like plastic and the end product tasted a bit like it as well. I tried to make a crust out of the cashew gunk with some extra ginger snaps I had, but the rancid oil was all I could taste so eventually, it all found it's way into the bin. All in all, a very disappointing result.
