In my family everyone loves peanut butter, that is why I buy it often and a lot of it.
A can of organic peanut butter without additives and sugar costs about $8, a pack of peanuts – $3.
That’s a big difference!
I started to think why don’t I make this butter myself.
Today, I will tell you how to make homemade peanut butter!
All you need is the desire and a very powerful blender, for example, a Vitamix.
This butter is prepared very quickly and simply, and as a result, you get a tasty and fresh homemade peanut butter.
Ready? Set? Let’s go cooking!
We will need:
2 cups (250g cup) of peanuts (not raw)
1-2 teaspoons of honey (add at the very end, when the butter is ready)
The most important thing with peanuts is quality and the peanuts must be without shells, so check and remove any remaining husk.
The nuts should be clean, rinse them if necessary.
Begin to grind the nuts. Help yourself with a spoon. Stop the blender, mix it with the spoon a couple of times and turn the machine back on. I tried different peanuts from different manufacturers and the result was always different.
Sometimes the nuts were more wet and fresh, so the butter was prepared very quickly. Other times it was drier and took some time. Check on the progress and do not hurry. There is another important aspect! If you want your butter crunchy, then do not over blend. Also, you can add 2 tbsp. of cocoa powder and make chocolate butter or a little bit salt for a more piquant taste.
My children, for example, love this butter with honey and banana. Just add 1 teaspoon of honey into the butter when it’s ready and serve it on a toast with banana. Just like this! Simple and very tasty! Bon appetit!
