Sunflower butter is out. New one would come in plastic jar. Don't do plastic jars any longer.
Got some sunflower seeds in bulk and grinded them. Handmixer got really hot as it took some time. Googled a bit and found a post about roasting seeds before, but it was too late for that.
Found another one about not having to add anything else, like oil or water or flavors. Cool.
After about 5 minutes I had very small parts but still no butter. I added a bit of maple syrup and it started to clump a bit, but wasn't right yet. I added some water and this did the trick. I finally got a butter and it was the best sunflower butter I ever tasted.
I have a mason jar in my fridge and crave half a spoon of sunflower butter as a treat. Homemade for the win.
