Make Peanut Butter Yourself

Today I will tell you how to make your own peanut butter.

As you prepare for this endeavor, make sure you have either a heavy duty blender or a food processor.  The food processor is the best choice but the blender is just fine too.   You will need the following ingredients.

1 cup roasted, unsalted, shelled peanuts 

1-1/2 to 3 tablespoons peanut oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

Sugar (optional)

The process is all about blending all the items together and adding the oil with just the amount of precision to make it creamy enough but not runny.   If you choose not to use unsalted peanuts, and you go with the salted kinds, you do not need to add the salt.  If you want to make it crunchy peanut butter, all you do is add crushed peanuts when the original blend is done.

That’s it.  as long as you keep an eye on it, the peanut butter should turn out just like you would expect.

If you are interested in a more organic or natural recipe, watch this video and Nirvan will show you how.

This is also a very good recipe and very much more in-depth.

Peanut Butter Overdose

All you have to do is be bored and broke.  If you have those two things together, it is possible to OD on peanut butter.(Watch this kid overdose on peanut butter).

When you are both of these things, sometimes you have to eat just peanut butter to curb you hunger pains.  When this happens, the only thing I can tell you to help, is to have a big glass of anything to drink except soda.  If you drink soda with too much peanut butter, it does not end well for you mouth.

The key is to push through it until you are no longer hungry.

That’s all for now, tune in next time for a different sort of creation.

Peanut Butter and Pancake

Beware, This Is A Sticky Mess…

We have been through the thick, and we have been through the thicker.  This is a new step in the mess and you will soon see why.

For the first part of the process, you have to figure our how to make pancakes for yourself.  I am not going to go through that because I always make them chunky or burnt.   If you do not know how to make pancakes, check out this video that gives you a step by step tutorial on making peanut butter pancakes.

Here’s where you need to pay attention.  After the pancakes are done and still fresh and hot spread the peanut butter to your desired thickness (If you wait until the pancakes cool down, the peanut butter will not melt and spread right).

Peanut Butter Ice Cream Topping

So delicious… Oh my gosh

If you like ice cream, and you like peanut butter, this is for you.  This is so great, and it is so fast.

First, take a few scoops of peanut butter and put it in the microwave until it is melted.

Do not leave it in too long because it will burn.

All you do now is pour the peanut butter melt over the ice cream of your choice and enjoy.

I found a video on Youtube on making a more in depth sauce for quality.  Check out how Laura Vitale makes her peanut butter sauce.

Peanut Butter and Bananas

Hello My Peanut Butter Creationists

How would you like to know how to make a super quick snack with just peanut butter and a banana.

In order for this to be a meaningful snack, you have to get over your fears of peanut butter.  Up till now you have been on the light path of creations.  For this one you will need to put that aside because these needs to be thick with peanut butter.

The trick to this snack is to peel the banana about half-way down.  If you go much further, you take risk on the banana breaking on your next step.  That being said, the next step is to apply a big slab of PB on about one inch of it.   I know you may be thinking “ahh this is too much peanut butter”.  I tell you “no”, and that is because the banana is very moist and it will compensate enough so the peanut butter is not so sticky.  Continue this process until the banana is consumed.

So, this has been another try at curbing our munchies.  Stay tuned.

Oh yeah, I found a new twist to this recipe. If you like to get funky and try new things, try this. Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich
