Make your own...Sunflower seed butter!

Time to start branching out! Time for: Sunflower Seed Butter.

I started out with a 1 pound bag of roasted, unsalted seeds.

Here they go. They had me concerned because it got to the pasty "pastry ball" phase quickly and stayed there much longer than the peanuts.
Finally you can see a teeeny bit of paste forming at the bottom, but that's it.

FINALLY! This took about 7 minutes, more than the 3 for the peanuts.

This is pretty good! I may have added a teensy bit too much salt, I intended to add 1 teaspoon but think I added 1 1/4? Just that much difference matters. It is a little salty. But paired with super sweet jam, you can't tell. The hubs is not a fan, even though he likes sunflower seeds. His review? "Ew. No. It tastes like sunflower seeds." But the boys like it and I do to....I don't think it's that much different than regular PB.

This bag made the same amount as the peanuts, about 16oz. A full jar!
