Spreads
Summary: If you have decided to eliminate butter and margarine from your diet, try these great substitutes.
 
 

Tahini (sesame seed butter), sunflower seed butter, and almond butter can be bought at some health stores, but they are normally quite expensive.

To make your own butters you will need a food processor or blender to press the oil out of the nuts. The macadamia nut has the highest oil content and is therefore excellent for butter-making.
