It's easy to make your own homemade peanut butter if you have a food processor or heavy-duty blender. The flavor of the peanuts really shines through when you make it yourself.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup roasted, unsalted, shelled peanuts
  • 1-1/2 to 3 tablespoons peanut or safflower oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Sugar to taste, optional

Preparation:

Blend in food processor or blender adding just enough oil to make it smooth. You can use salted peanuts and omit the salt, or omit the salt entirely with unsalted peanuts. Add sugar to taste, if desired.

If you want chunky peanut butter, add chopped peanuts after you have made the smooth version.

Store peanut butter in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use within two weeks.

Yield: about 1-1/2 cups
