Hey there, fellow peanut butter enthusiasts! If you’re anything like me, peanut butter is a pantry staple that disappears faster than you can imagine. Those empty jars, stacked in my kitchen, were just waiting for a purpose. And now, I’ve discovered the perfect use for them: homemade peanut butter!
Believe me when I say that once you experience the joy of crafting your own peanut butter, there’s no turning back. The simplicity is astounding, requiring just one ingredient: peanuts.
And to make it even better for the planet, I highly recommend purchasing your peanuts in bulk from a local grocery store that supports low-waste initiatives. Don’t forget to bring your reusable bag or jar along for the eco-friendly journey!
Get ready to savor the rich, creamy goodness of homemade peanut butter and bid farewell to store-bought versions.
Homemade Peanut Butter
- Food Processor
- 3 cups Peanuts
- 1 tsp Salt optional
- If peanuts aren't already roasted, roast them at 375 for about 5-7 minutes, until some are golden. Let cool for about 10-15 minutes.
- Put all of them in the food processor and add salt if desired.
- Blend until you get a creamy consistency. This will take about 5-10 minutes. It should become a grainy texture at first, and eventually turn creamy.
- Viola! Homemade zero-waste peanut butter! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
