• 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
• 1/2 cup boiling water
• 1/2 cup unsweetened cashew butter
Empty cashew cream into bowl, mix, and return to jar. Dissolve the salt in the boiling water. Stir in the cashew butter until smooth. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or until very thick. The cream may be stored in the refrigerator for 10 days.
