I just get all my stuff at the grocery store; they have a great organic section. If you can't find it at the grocery store you're going to have to go to a specialty store like a Natural Foods Co-Op or a Whole Foods. If you still can't find it I know there are lots of different places that carry online. I like this place because they will ship for free for orders over $59.
Grey, thanks for the idea about making Almond Butter! I'm allergic to peanut products but I love almond butter. I looked online for some recipes to try. Here's what I've found:
Makes about ¾ cup.
While almond butter can be made from raw nuts, roasting the nuts just prior to making the butter considerably enhances both flavor and aroma. To roast the almonds, spread them in a thin layer on a baking sheet at 300°F for about 20 minutes. Stir a couple of times to assure even roasting.
1 cup roasted almonds
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon unrefined vegetable oil
Combine the almonds and salt in a food processor, blender, meat grinder or nut butter machine and process until the nuts are finely ground. Add the oil and continue processing until the almond butter reaches your desired degree of smoothness, adding more oil if necessary. For chunky butter, stir in ¼ cup chopped almonds. Store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator.
Variations: Substitute Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts or macadamia nuts for the almonds. Or combine two or more of these nuts in any proportion.
