Sunflower Seed Butter

No time for anything fancy. Here's what I did.

1 cup raw sunflower seeds
4-6 tablespoons canola oil (would probably be good with sunflower too)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon (approx) raw honey

Put seeds in blender, cover and turn on. I used the "puree" setting on mine, which is setting 2 on a 10 speed blender. Add the oil until the seeds begin to resemble the texture you want them to be. I added mine a tablespoon at a time. You may need to help the blender churn things with a rubber spatula- be VERY careful if you do this. Once the texture starts to look about right, add the salt and honey and blend a minute more. Make sure the texture is where you want it by adding a little more oil, if needed. Turn off the blender and taste. Adjust seasonings (salt and honey) to taste.
