Sounds interesting. Cashews seem to have a distinct taste thats addictive as is.. I couldnt even begin to imagine its potential as butter. :D

Quick question...How do you measure your penut butter. its way too hard to get it to fit in a teaspoon because its soo sitcky. Do you like use half a cup and convert it or what?

I dont count calories. I either put the desired amount on my bread for a sammich, or just eat a big spoonful.

Weigh jar first.

Apply nut butter to toast/eat with a spoon/whatever

Weigh jar again.

Calculate difference.

lol, so scientific, does everyone else here have a scale at home too? unless you're talking about the one for a human, i guess that would work. sounds like what i was doing in lab last night, except with ethanol crystals. hehe.

I measure in half jars. It's just easier that way.

IMHO a kitchen scale is one of the best investments you can make as a bodybuilder.

Keep in mind that cashew butter has the HIGHEST level of saturated fat among all the nut families.
An oz of cashews and an oz of peanuts both have roughly 13g of fat, but the cashews have 3g of saturated fat, peanuts have about 1.9g of sat fat.

I would love to try most of the nut butters on this site, http://www.futtersnutbutters.com/ but i have a weakness for PB so i don't even go near it or anything like it. I could eat a jar in one sitting.

What? I could quit anytime. If I wanted to. But I don't.

It's amazing!! The creamy kind sucks, but crunchy is just awesome. Too bad it is so high in fat....I think it's making me fat :cry:
