Homemade Peanut Butter

1. Take one pound of roasted peanuts and put them in a food processor. (This is extremely difficult )

2. Pour the honey in with the peanuts. Use my method of pour the honey around the container twice. I rarely ever measure anything. Add more if you like a sweeter peanut butter.

3. Turn the processor on high for around 10 minutes. After a few minutes turn off the processor and scrape the sides and then turn it on again.

4. The peanuts will reach a magic moment where they will become a smooth round ball of fresh peanut butter heaven in the food processor. That is the magic moment they go from boring peanuts into peanut butter. Yes! Turn off the processor and scrape the sides. Be sure to get the little bits off the bottom. Keep on processing for a while until is it smooth and creamy. If you want an easily spreadable peanut butter add a little peanut oil. Then you will have smooth and creamy peanut butter.

    • Awe that is so sad. I don’t know how I would live without one. My old one died a while back, so I got a new one as a gift from my husband. He knows how I go gaga over new kitchen appliances!

  1. How exciting! I’ve already been trying to convince my man we need a food processor – this might do the trick! Peanut butter is one of my very favorite foods.

    • You could tell him how much healthier you could be by processing your own food. Then think of the money you would save buying just ingredients and processing them yourself. It might just pay for itself!

  5. I’ve been making my own peanut butter for years, and I’m always amazed when people look at me like a lunatic. It’s so easy to do, and definitely tastes the best, yet so few people know about this.

    I’ve read that peanuts can be sprayed with lots of pesticides in the growing process. I’ve just been buying them in the store cans, but I’m wondering if there is a better/more frugal way. Possibly buying in bulk? I need to do a little more research, I think. But, I’m curious if anyone else has any leads on this?
