HOME MADE PEANUT BUTTER.

peanut butter is a pantry staple and a favourite to most.I was out and about doing some shopping then it just hit me how expensive it really is and this got me curious,I mean,it’s just nuts in a jar,why not make my own.
Well as it turns out it’s so easy to bring together,I even surprised myself not to mention pocket friendly and healthier too.

INGREDIENTS
1 kg groundnuts(raw)
4 tablespoons olive oil/peanut oil
4 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons salt

INSTRUCTIONS
I started off by blanching my nuts,this you do first by bringing water in a pot to a steady boil.

image

Introduce your nuts into the boiling water and let them boil for 1 minute,be careful here not to overcook the nuts.

image

When done with,you strain the nuts of all the water.

image

Preheat your oven to about 175ā„ƒ.
I then went ahead and spread my nuts on my baking tray,don’t you worry about crowding the tray.
I put it inside my oven and baked for 1 hour.

image

Be sure to check from time to time turning the nuts around for even roasting.when done take I took them out of the oven and let them cool completely.

image

Now take the peel off your nuts.

You are done at this stage,however I took mine back to the oven for a further10minutes to achieve a darker smokier colour that I love on my peanut butter.

image

Divide this into two or if you have a powerful enough blender you can do it in 1 batch.

image

Pulse your nuts in the blender until it starts to form lumps and begins resembling peanut butter.

image

Here introduce your oil salt and honey.

image

Pulse further till smooth and consistent.

image

Scoop this up into a jar and seal.it can be stored in a refrigerator for up to 3 months.
You can spice it up by adding cinnamon,paprika and other ingredients as you so wish,
What’s the fun in making your own peanut butter after all?

Enjoy.
