Well, when I first saw the subject line I considered what should be done
with the left-over almond bits from the almond-milk-making process
(instead of trying to congeal the "milk").

Yep, nut butter.

No, I have not tried to grind "milked" almonds fine enough for nut
butter.  I have purchased commercial cashew butter in the past (I have a
great fondness for cashews...), grew up on peanut butter.

Nuts ground fine, a bit of added oil if they were processed previously
for milk, a hint of salt?

I know I'm probably missing something.  How much heat and when applied?
