Better Than Butter Spread

A dairy free alternative for butter, that is healthy and nutritious.  Spreadable like butter, even looks like butter. The mild flavor of this spread blends well with sweet or savory. Use in place of butter or margarine, except in baking. It will keep up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.

Makes 3/4 of a cup


2 cups water
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/3 cup macadamia nut pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt



1) Place water in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
2) Mix cornmeal with a little water to form a thick paste, add to boiling water. Reduce heat to low. Cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring continually until mixture thickens.
3) Wash macadamia nuts to remove any shell particles. Drain off water and place in a blender.
4) Add hot cornmeal and salt to nuts. Blend until smooth as butter.   
5) Pour  better than butter spread into a butter dish to cool.

 It is important to make sure cornmeal is hot when adding it to the nuts so it will set when cooled. 

John 15:7 If ye ABIDE in me, and my words ABIDE in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
