Peanut Butter

Homemade PB

Hi, my name is Jennifer, and I am a peanut butter junkie.

If I was alone on a desert island and could only bring one food?

Stressed-out comfort food?

Favorite thing to eat with chocolate?

I think you get the idea!

I like all-natural, no sugar or stuff-added peanut butter and I’ve tried all variety of brands, organic, and not.  The one thing that I can’t get over is how expensive plain ole peanut butter can be.  I can really go through the stuff and it just never lasts long enough!

In a recent out-of-peanut-butter-crisis, I decided to try and make my own.  The slightly astonishing thing is that I had no directions and I didn’t try to find a recipe.  And it worked!  It worked so well, I’ve already eaten it all and made another batch.  Nom!

It’s super easy –  16 oz of roasted, salted peanuts in the variety of your choice.  Toss that into your food processor (it’s a must, sorry if you don’t have one!),   Add about 1 tbs vegetable oil.  I used corn oil, but I’m sure peanut oil would be even more awesome.

Process for about three minutes or until smooth.  Move to a bowl and refrigerate.

Eat!  Really, that’s it!

Nomnomnom!

Next time, I think I’ll try roasting my own peanuts…

    Jen, Try adding some pure maple syrup. A friend gave us a jar and it was incredible. deb

    You don’t even have to add oil! Just keep processing until the oil is released from the peanuts. At a grocery store back in CA, they have grinders in the store with peanuts, cashews and almonds for you to grind right there. They even have…wait for it…chocolate chips and peanuts mixed so you can make CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER!!!

      I have done it without oil, but I find I like it just a wee bit smoother. It’s must a me thing! Chocolate peanut butter…sounds yummy, and dangerous!!
