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.
