Never buy peanut butter again once you make your own from Alton Brown's recipe!

Peanut butter has been on our list to make from scratch for awhile. But I kept forgetting to buy raw peanuts every time I went to the store.  And then my studly husband during the middle of the day one day, sent me an email that just said “We should do this!” And it had this video.

And this is why I married him.Never buy peanut butter again once you make your own from Alton Brown's recipe!So I did just what Alton said.  1 lb of peanuts fried in peanut oil,Never buy peanut butter again once you make your own from Alton Brown's recipe!Then cooled.Never buy peanut butter again once you make your own from Alton Brown's recipe!Then into a food processor with honey and kosher salt.
