Homemade Peanut Butter

Hi,Today I'm going to show you how to make homemade peanut butter. This is a fun project for the whole family. Homemade Peanut Butter


For this recipe, you'll need:

* 1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil

* roasted, unsalted peanuts (shelled or unshelled)

* pinch of salt


  1. Select the Peanuts Start with roasted, unsalted peanuts. You can buy them shelled or unshelled. If you buy unshelled peanuts, enlist family members to help shell them faster.(If you buy unroasted penuts o dry roast them after shelling and deskinning without oil on a nonstick till its light pinkish brown .)
  2. You can take off the red skins of the peanuts, or you can leave them on. If you leave them on, you'll see little red flecks in the final product, which some people like in homemade peanut butter.In my version of this recipe I m using clean deskinned roasted peanuts because I am allergic to the red skin )
  3. One cup of peanuts will give you about 1/2 cup of peanut butter.
  4. Combine the Ingredients Pour 1 tablespoon of peanut or vegetable oil into a food processor.
  5. Now, pour in the peanuts. Add a pinch of salt. You can always add more salt later.
  6. Put on the lid and start the food processor. It will take around 2 to 3 minutes to chop and blend the peanuts.
  7. If the peanuts seem stuck, stop the machine to scrape the sides of the bowl. Then start mixing again.
  8. If you need to help it along, add a little more oil. Remember the oil will make the peanut butter thinner.
  9. Serve or Store the Peanut Butter After 2 to 3 minutes, stop the food processor and get a close look at texture of the peanut butter. Once it is as smooth as you like it, pour the peanut butter into a serving dish or storage container.
  10. For crunchy peanut butter, chop some additional peanuts. Pour them into the bowl, and stir them into the peanut butter. Spread the peanut butter on your favorite bread for a delicious snack at any time of the day.



This is great... one of my favourites, now I can make it myself...
