COCONUT BUTTER RECIPE
Coconut butter is healthy and easy to use, a wonderful staple to make often and to keep on hand. But coconut butter can be quite expensive to buy. This recipe is fast, easy and economical to make (about three times less expensive than buying it)! I provide both food processor and blender instructions below.

Food Processor: Place unsweetened coconut into work bowl of food processor, with metal blade insert. Turn the motor on and wait 5 to 15 minutes, depending on your food processor. The butter is ready when it is runny and as smooth as possible.Blender: Place unsweetened coconut in blender. Put on lid, and start motor at lowest speed. Maintain lowest speed about 2 minutes, then increase speed gradually as it liquefies. Use tamper as necessary to keep coconut pieces processing until it moves on its own. After about 4 minutes and coconut is liquidy, increase speed to medium-high for an additional 2 minutes.
Use a spatula to scrape butter into a jar with a lid. Store in the refrigerator. The butter will harden. To soften, place jar into larger bowl of hot water and stir occasionally; or place jar in warm oven for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
