Mmmm. Homemade peanut butter!

Homemade Honey Roasted Peanut Butter

Okay, inspired by Joy the Baker, I knew I HAD to try my hand at making homemade peanut butter.  It is so unbelievably easy that I can’t believe I’ve never even thought to do it before.  It’s delicious too!  I had the best peanut butter sandwich with this stuff, and I think it would be really good for dipping apples.  (I believe I mentioned my lack of fondness for biting into an apple – this would totally work for me.)  It’s really fast and really good.  Try it and see.

Recipe:  Homemade Peanut Butter

1 1/2 c. honey roasted peanuts

pinch of salt, optional

Place peanuts in bowl of your food processor with the blade attachment.   Process peanuts for about 4 minutes.  You will see them gradually turn to a shiny paste as the oil is released from the peanuts.  (My photo is from about 3 minutes into the process – the peanut butter is just starting to get shiny.)

Store in an airtight container in the fridge.  Microwave for about 30 seconds to soften before serving.  (I also tossed in an extra handful of peanuts after it was smooth and shiny to make some chunky peanut butter.  Awesome!)

    Hi,

    I have a quick question. Do you know how long this will keep in the fridge before it will spoil?

    Thanks.

    Piee, I read here that you can keep it in the fridge for up to two months. Mine won’t last more than a couple days though, so I won’t be testing that out. : )

    What a great idea! I have never tackled making my own peanut butter at home, for some reason I didn’t think it would be this easy. Thanks for sharing!
