Homemade Peanut Butter

Add Peanut Butter to the things you should be making yourself at home. You can buy raw peanuts and roast them yourself, or you can purchase peanuts already roasted from a trusted source and skip the roasting, shelling, and de-skinning (this is what I do). Making peanut butter is as easy as it gets, takes less than 5 minutes, and the kiddos love helping. Here's how. You will need some peanuts, peanut oil (make sure these are not genetically modified; mutant peanuts = mutant people; I'm sure that's scientific), and a food processor or pretty stout blender.

Instructions

1. Place about a pound of peanuts in a food processor or blender, and start chopping them up.

2. When the peanuts are pretty much into a really chunky thick paste drizzle about 1 1/2 tbsp of peanut oil into the machine while it is still running. I don't measure any of these things. I throw some peanuts in and slowly pour oil in until I get what I want, not rocket science.

3. Add more or less oil to get the consistency you like.

4. Add raw honey if you like, about 1 1/2 tsp.

5. Put in an air-tight container and refrigerate.
