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!)
