DIY Peanut Butter

There have been far too many political posts this week so here is a positive one: how to make your own peanut butter!!!

You’ll need:

  • peanuts, lots of them
  • food processor 

Very simple procedure. Put peanuts in food processor and turn it on high speed. Eventually the oil gets separated from the peanuts and it becomes a thick paste. You may have to do this in short bursts of blending to prevent your motor overheating when the paste starts getting thick.

The end result is a 1 – ingredient product, depending on the quality of peanuts you purchased. The peanut butter in my attempt was thicker and drier than a store bought one, but it tasted better. Refrigerate afterwards because real food goes bad in a few days.
