Well actually just peanut butter time. Yummy homemade peanut butter time!
I found a recipe (if you can call it that since it’s one ingredient!) online. I guess you could call it more of a tutorial on how to make it. If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, you’re missing out! She has amazing recipes at Averie Cooks.
We finally ran out of peanut butter. I bought peanuts about a month ago since I thought we were almost out of peanut butter… But it ended up taking weeks!
Anyways the process was super easy and it tastes amazing. I don’t know if it’s because you know you made it so it tastes better, or if it really tastes better than store bought.. Either way I’m hooked. She also has recipes for other homemade butters which I plan on experimenting with around the holidays. Yes already Christmas planning!
I used a 16oz can of lightly salted cocktail peanuts and my Ninja food processor.
I didn’t add any additional salt or any other flavorings.
According the the recipe the peanuts go through stages and can take up to five minutes of processing. First they get chopped up, then become really fine, then form like a peanut ball paste, then the natural oils break through and it begins to smooth out. At this point you can stop it when its the consistency you like. Maybe a little chunky or take it all the way smoooth. Which I did. I stopped and scrapped the sides down twice.
Thick, kind of pasty… Keep going!
Love my Ninja!
Now that’s how I like it-creamy.
I made enough to fill an average size mason jar. Sorry I’m not sure of the exact ounces.
I hope you take some time to make this, it’s soooo good!
