I make my own peanut butter in the food processor with dry roasted unsalted peanuts. It is so much better than any of the store-bought products with all that oil, salt and sugar. If you process two cups of peanuts for about 5 minutes it's perfectly creamy, not stiff or oily.
I tried making pecan butter, but didn't like the somewhat bitter taste, so I added it to some peanut butter I'd already made and it was fine.
I love almonds, so may try that butter next.
Pesticides and preservatives are always a concern in the U.S., unfortunately.
