Homemade peanut butter ...

Of all the food I've made over the years, homemade peanut butter is the easiest (and probably among the healthiest.) All it takes is roasted peanuts, a food processor and five minutes. Yep, that's it. Not an additive to be found.


 

I start with about 12 ounces of dry roasted peanuts and put them in my food processor. I think a blender might work if you don't have a food processor.

 

The first stage (left) is going to take about 2 minutes of processing on low-medium speed. After about 2 minutes more at high speed, the peanut butter will become creamy (right) and, for the most part, smooth.


Place the peanut butter in an air-tight container to store. I keep mine refrigerated, but I'm not entirely sure that it's necessary.



This all-natural peanut butter is so tasty, and I feel good about snacking on it with celery sticks mid-afternoon when I have a bout of hunger. Love it! No additives = healthy snack.
