Step 4. Place into airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

Step-By-Step Instructions

When you grind the hazelnuts, you will see that they go through stages:  they become fine crumbs after the first minute or two. But if you keep  grinding for another 2-3 minutes, the hazelnuts will turn into hazelnut  butter, which is what you want.

Pro Tip

How to store: I recommend storing it in an airtight container at room temperature (for  up to 2 weeks) for optimum freshness. It also freezes well!
