An easy how-to guide to making basic, creamy Homemade Peanut
I can say in all honesty that my oldest son has eaten more peanut
Sometimes I like to try to make a recipe just to see if I can. I’ve been wanting to make my own peanut
I purchased a 16 ounce can of no salt, no skin roasted cocktail peanuts. You can use salted, but I wanted to control the salt myself.
Small Batch Peanut Butter Cookies
would be a perfect recipe to use Homemade Peanut
So this is what you do. Open the peanuts. Put them in a food processor. Give it a whirl. Seriously, pulse it and run it until the peanuts are ground and smooth. That’s it!
The peanuts go through random stages while being processed. At the stage where they all ball up in a big clump, I thought I had done something wrong. Have no fear, just let it whirl and in just a few seconds the now peanut butter will become smooth and creamy!
For real, this was fun! Both boys and I watched the food processor like diamonds was about to shoot from it. Ok, I watched it like diamonds was about to be produced, the boys watched it like LEGOS was about to appear! It’s all relative.
Lincoln tasted and liked it, but says he prefers the store-bought kind. And they say old people get set in their ways…
I totally love it and will make it often. I do plan to make cookies and other desserts with the next batch. Maybe I’ll save a few additives and preservatives that way.
Oh, store this in the refrigerator, it’ll keep longer!
- Add 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup and pulse until combined.
- Add 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon and combine.
- Try 1 tablespoon pumpkin spice to the mixture.
- Add 1/2 cup Nutella and pulse until smooth.
Get creative! What are some of the fun flavor combos and add-ins would you add to your peanut
