With pine nuts at $35 per pound, we wondered if it made any sense at all to make a butter out of them. Then we tasted it: the richest, most indulgent nut butter ever, and satisfying in minuscule bits, so that a little 2- or 3-ounce jar makes a fine food gift, like a present of caviar.
1 pound toasted pine nuts
1 tablespoon canola or peanut oil, or any neutral-flavored oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
How to Make It
Start with pine nuts toasted to medium-brown so that the full roasty flavor comes out. (Be careful: They burn so easily!) To make the butter, place toasted pine nuts in a food processor. Add oil and salt. Process until smooth.
