Hey speaking of peanut butter, I made my own! I was really surprised how easy it was!! I made almond butter over Christmas break (which I’m now almost out of so next time I make some more I’ll post the recipe) and that was pretty easy but quite a bit more involved than the peanut butter I just made. And it’s so so good!
So here’s what I did…
Last time I was at Whole Foods I got some peanuts. Roasted, unsalted. (you could probably roast them yourself, but why would you want to when you can get them already roasted? 😉 )
Then I threw them in the food processor with a couple of pinches of salt.
Then you start grinding!
At first they’ll look all mealy like this…
Then they’ll form a big chunk in your food processor.
It’s OK. Just be patient and eventually it will smooth out. Keep grinding till it reaches the consistency you like. I like mine a little bit runny.
I always have a million mason jars hanging around so I put mine in one of those.
Delicious! Hope you give it a try- it’s so easy and everything tastes better home made!
Have a great evening- catch ya on the flip side!
