- Peanuts (raw and skinned)
- Peanut oil
Make sure your peanuts are totally raw, without their skins, and salt free. You can usually find them in the bulk section of your grocery store.
How to make Peanut Butter From Scratch:
- Pan (or wok) fry peanuts in peanut oil
- Let them cool completely
- Once cooled, add everything to a food processor and blend away until it’s smooth!
- Be sure that you watch your peanuts when you’re frying them. You want to slowly stir them the whole time your frying on high to avoid this. Once the heat is turned down, you can stir a couple of times a minute.
- Make sure they cool completely! Definitely give it the full 20 minutes.
- Scrape down the edges of the food processor to make sure it’s all incorporated.
- Adjust to your taste! If you like your peanut butter sweeter, add more honey. If you like your peanut butter saltier, add more salt!
Why buy store bought when you can have this creamy dreamy peanut butter at home?
