I found a recipe for homemade peanut butter somewhere on the world wide web and really wanted to try it out. The only problem was I didn't have a food processor which was a required tool. Lucky for me I got a really nice one for Christmas!
It's really easy to make and tastes pretty good! So all you do is put the peanuts of your choice and a bit of sugar in the food processor. Then turn that sucker on. At first you think that nothing is happening and it's just making a fine peanut dust like in the picture below.....
But just keep going! Eventually you will see it start to actually form into a nice smooth peanut butter. Since we prefer ours to be creamy rather than crunchy I let it go for quite a while.
In order to test it out, I put it all in an almost empty peanut butter jar that we had. I wanted the kids to try without knowing it was homemade and see how it was received.
Well since there were no complaints I think it was a winner! So all natural peanut butter without all the preservatives in about 10 minutes at home is a win in my book!
