  • 15 g (½ oz) garlic
  • 20 g (¾ oz) organic raw almonds
  • 125 g ( oz) salted butter
  • 10 g ( oz) full-cream milk powder table salt, to taste


Using a mortar and pestle, roughly crush the garlic and almonds together.

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and add the milk powder, garlic mixture and a pinch of salt. Simmer until golden brown. Pass through a fine sieve, shaking well to remove the excess butter. Discard the hot liquid butter.

Spread the solids onto a large tray lined with paper towel. Shake the tray to remove any excess butter. Cool to room temperature and store in an airtight container.
