1. Basic Creamy Peanut Butter

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups of unsalted, roasted peanuts, shelled
  • A pinch of salt

Instructions:

  • Add the peanuts to your food processor with the metal blade attached
  • Pulse until the peanuts are well chopped
  • Add a pinch of salt (you can always add more later if you like)
  • Now run the processor for about 3 minutes, scraping the side every minute
  • If the peanut butter is too dry or not smooth enough for your tastes, add about 1 tablespoon of peanut oil or sunflower oil and run again for another minute
  • Scoop into the container of your choice and store in the refrigerator. This will keep for about 2 months, but you will probably eat it well before then!

 

2.  Crunchy Peanut Butter

If you like the crunchy kind of peanut butter, you can make it by using the same recipe as above, but after the peanuts are well chopped, remove about half a cup of the peanuts. After your spread is ready, add the peanuts and stir them in by hand.
