Tip #1:  If you want to make homemade almond butter, this is where I buy my raw, organic, unpasteurized, sproutable almonds in bulk.  They are imported from Spain and are not subjected to the U.S. law that requires all domestic almonds be pasteurized (which means they are truly not raw).  You can google “U.S. pasteurization law for almonds” for more information.
