Homemade Dry Roasted Peanut Butter!Sunday, June 23, 2013
About 2 months ago I posted a recipe for Homemade Honey Roasted Peanut Butter. It's still one of my all time favorite recipes (and so easy!), but being the peanut butter lover that I am, I needed to broaden my horizons.
You see, once you make homemade peanut butter, store bought peanut butter can never compare to this new found delicacy. Homemade peanut butter is in a league of its own. When the sole ingredient of this recipe is peanuts, the possibilities are endless.
After loyally sticking to Honey Roasted Peanut Butter for over 4 months, I started to think outside of the box. I started to get creative. I started to wonder what would happen if I used a different type of peanut as the base of my peanut butter.
Since it's Summer, my brother and I had time for quite a few experiments with tons of various types/brands of peanuts. Our fridge has been constantly stocked with a new type of peanut butter that is always calling my name.
I don't know why it took my so many months to try Dry Roasted Peanuts. My Dry Roasted Peanut Butter is now in a sealed container begging to be opened every time I open the fridge. Being the pushover I am, I let it lure me in.
So, do you have 5 minutes to spare? Don't make my mistakes. Try a different type of peanut butter.
Oh, so you need a reason to make this? No problem. This peanut butter is all natural. It has one ingredient, but you don't have to stir it or pour excess amounts of oil off the top like you would a normal natural peanut butter. It's also lower in calories than your average store bought peanut butter. Plus, this is peanut butter. Is it ever a chore to make and eat peanut butter? I didn't think so.
Dry Roasted Peanut Butter
- 1 16-64oz can of Planter's Dry Roasted Peanuts (Or any peanuts really!)
- Put the whole peanuts in the food processor. (No chopping or anything is required. Literally just throw them in.)
- Turn on the food processor. Let it grind and grind and grind.
- Keep Grinding. The peanuts go through various stages, unless you get a really heavy duty processor like I have!
- You're done! Keep the peanut butter refrigerated in a sealed container, and it can last for over a month!
Are you experimenting in the kitchen this summer?
