Homemade peanut butter

Well I have been busy today, first a chilli and now peanut butter.

The recipe is two cups of roasted peanuts and salt to taste. All you do is grind the peanuts in a food processor until it becomes a paste, add some salt to taste and blend a little longer to incorporate the salt. The recipe says to blend for 2 to 3 minutes once it has become a paste.

I used Pink Himalayan Salt in my peanut butter.

It turned out really lovely and is now stored in my fridge ready to enjoy. :)

Wow, Alicia, this is really impressive - making your own Peanut butter. I have just run out of my shop-bought peanut butter, so I am going to seriously consider making some - it looks nice and simple - and it looks great!

It's so easy to make but take a tip from me, buy ready shelled peanuts and not monkey nuts, you can imagine how long I was shelling nuts today - lol!! My husband did rescue me after lunch and shelled some as well.

If you buy the shelled nuts this would be incredibly quick to make.

I will definitely avoid the Monkey Nuts, Alicia. Thanks for the tip! :-) xx

Good and you are welcome as you may be knee deep in monkey nut shells and it may be many hours later - lol.

Sounds a bit like the bar in Singapore where they throw the shells on the floor - Raffles, isn't it...

Yes I'm sure it is Raffles.

Thank you Jerry and it tastes lovely and it's only peanuts and a little Pink Himalayan salt - that's it, no Palm Oil or sugar or any other rubbish. Fancy a jar do you - ha ha :)

Fantastic and you will know exactly what's in it :)

Good making it with Olive Oil as well as it's then in it's raw cold pressed state.

I can't believe that Morrisons sell one with nothing but peanuts, that's unheard of. Do you think the food industry is finally listening - you can but hope!!

The food processor I have is the a Kenwood one (I have added the link below):

argos.co.uk/product/4200442

It is a good food processor but I will say one thing in that it can be difficult to slot the lid into the relevant part of the unit, other than that it's a nice little food processor and the reviews are good.

Alicia :)

So sorry for taking so long to reply to you, I have been getting a lot of emails and I missed your reply completely and have just found it.

I will definitely have a look at the peanut butter in Morrisons as that is an amazing price, most cost over £3! Manufacturers seem to like to challenge you with equipment. ;)

Morrisons isn't my favourite shop but if they are starting to sell different things then that is really good.
