Homemade peanut butter is something I have wanted to make myself for awhile now. I even bought a bag of peanuts… but I was still way too nervous to try to make it. What if I tried to make peanut butter and it didn’t work? I would’ve wasted all of those peanuts (and peanuts aren’t cheap!).
Something came over me yesterday when I was cleaning out my kitchen cupboards and found the bag of peanuts. I decided to try homemade peanut butter once and for all.
Here are the ingredients:
That’s right, just peanuts. No salt, no oil, no sugar. Peanuts only. A food processor is necessary too.
Put all of the peanuts into your food processor.
Attach the lid, pulse a few times and then let it go for about 4 minutes.
The peanuts will turn into crumbs, a fine powder and then it will start clumping. Finally, it will turn into smooth peanut butter. Just like this:
Put it into your container of choice and refrigerate up to 2 weeks. You can keep it at room temperature on your kitchen counter, as well, but it won’t last as long (I don’t recommend doing this if your house is very warm).
Homemade peanut butter in under 5 minutes. It couldn’t get much easier. Or more delicious.
