homemade peanut butter


Had I known it was so easy to make homemade nut butter, I would have been doing much sooner.  I've always bought natural peanut butter, and thankfully, my family loves it.  Since I've been on this journey of making more and more homemade foods, I thought I would add peanut butter to my repertoire.  I was shocked as I researched "recipes" only to find the method was incredibly simple.  Are you ready for this?  Take desired amount of peanuts or nuts of your choosing (I did 3 cups for a pint sized jar).  Pour them into the food processor.  Turn it on and leave it there until nuts turn to butter (it took around 10 minutes or less).  Pour into jar.  That's it!  You can also roast the nuts first.  I'm going to try this next.  You may also wish to add salt.  I did not, but I might try it at some point.

  1. Yum! We avoid peanuts, so I make my nut butter from almonds (toasted are especially nice), cashews, and Brazil nuts. I add coconut oil and a splash of vegetable oil to bring it all together. Have fun experimenting with different nuts.

    Thank you my friend for your sweet visit and comment. We are so blessed, excited and look forward to our first grandbaby :o) ...also, our son who you made the fingerless gloves for, has a heart to work with orphans...he has one more year of college, but is already in touch with some possible opportunities.

  7. when we make peanut butter we add peanut oil, just a bit, dash of salt and some honey. I have some other nut oils to try with other nuts too but Ive been sticking to old faithful. The awesome thing is that our 17 yo makes it-since he consumes the most. We keep the roasted nuts on our weekly shopping list for whenever the need arises.
