Place almonds in the food processor together with a little salt (optional) and start blending. It will be rather loud in the beginning, but the whole almonds break down quickly and it gets less noisy.
First you'll get a powdery almond meal consistency but as you keep processing the almonds break down further and their oils gets released.
Suddenly the almonds will form this big sticky ball that gets thrown around the food processor
and just as quickly that ball breaks down into a creamy mass. It looks almost like butter already but it's not quite done yet. Stop the food processor and scrape down the sides.
Continue processing until the almond butter looks almost liquid. At this point it will have good spreading consistency and no mealy texture anymore. The whole process took only 5 minutes for me.
Transfer to a container (I prefer a glass jar) and store in the pantry or fridge. It doesn't last longer than a week in my house but I think it should stay good for about a month.
