Home made goodness
I had purchased a food processor a couple years ago. I love it! It is so easy to make your own peanut butter with one. If you like Adams peanut butter you need to try this.
2 cups roasted unsalted peanuts
Put your two cups of peanuts in the food processor on push the on button. There are a few stages the peanuts go through.
The peanuts will start to blend and mash together.
Stage 3 was my freak out point the first time I made peanut butter because you get this big ball of peanut that rolls around the food processor. Have no fear it will soon smooth out. The waiting process is kind of like watching food cook in the microwave. I got to a point where I thought it would never work. But then…
SMOOTHNESS!! One thing is that it never really gets as smooth as Jif or Skippy. But you have a decision to make, knowing what is in your food or trying to figure out what mono and diglycerides are without getting on the internet. The choices we have to make.
This recipe makes about an 8oz jar. I really like this with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar. I have also tried it with honey in it and it does make the consistency of it really thick and hard to spread. I have also heard through the grapevine that making this with honey roasted peanuts is wonderful. I keep this in the refrigerator… not really sure why it is just what I do with the Adams peanut butter.
Hope this gives you inspiration to make it yourself.
