How to make homemade peanut butter in a few easy steps

See also

Peanut butter is a staple in many adult and kids daily meals. Many of the store brands are filled with unnatural ingredients and the organic peanut butters can get rather expensive. An alternative to this is to make your own peanut butter at home with just a few simple ingredients.

Once you make peanut butter at home you many never want to eat store bought peanut butter again. Store bought peanut butter versus homemade peanut butter just can’t be beat.

The entire process of making peanut butter takes about 5 or 10 minutes. Homemade peanut butter may be a little thinner than store bought at room temperature but the taste comparison is what matters. You can also make your peanut butter stir free to avoid having to mix in the oil each time you want to use it.

Depending on if you want an oil free and salt free peanut butter will make the difference in the way the peanut butter taste.

Some things you will need in order to make your own homemade peanut butter are a food storage jar or glass container to hold the peanut butter in, a spoon for mixing and a food processor.

The ingredients for basic peanut butter is a 16 oz. bag or jar of honey roasted, plain salted or unsalted peanuts or even use a jar of mix nuts to add a little variety to your peanut butter. Without adding any salt or oil to your mixture just add the peanuts into a food processor and watch it go. Run the processor for about 5 minutes or until the peanuts for into a peanut butter dough ball.

Keep processing the peanuts until they get to a smooth thinner texture that looks like peanut butter. Make your peanut butter smooth or crunchy to the texture or thickness you prefer. The peanut butter will be thinner after processing because it is warm but you can place it in the refrigerator to thicken it up.
