I made fresh Peanut Butter again today!
Bruce is a huge PB fan. We eat it often for breakfast, spreading it with jam or honey on toasted Ezekiel Brand Breads or English Muffins.
One day about a year ago, I realized that I was buying A LOT of natural Peanut Butter. I decided that day I could make it just as good myself, for less. Ever since, Peanut Butter Grinding has become part of our cooking repertoire.
It is so easy, there’s almost no excuse not to do it. Plus, it tastes great, saves us $, contains NO added oils, sugars, flavors or preservatives, and does not separate! Sometimes, I go exotic and do Pecan Butter or Almond Butter instead, just to mix it up little. ;).
Okay ~ are you ready? Let’s Get Cooking!
Home Made Peanut Butter
*Ingredients for 12 oz
1.5 cups of unsalted peanuts
1/4 tsp salt (omit if peanuts are salted)
~ a small electric food processor
Place peanuts in food processor. Grind for about a minute. Scrape down sides with a spatula. Taste. Add more salt if needed. Grind one to two more minutes.
At first, the mixture is crumbly, then forms a ball, and then will become smooth. It will get warm!
Place in container, but leave uncovered until cool. Enjoy!
CHEERS, and HAPPY EATING
