Easy Peanut Butter

July 12, 2010

Not much outdoor adventures going on these days due to bad weather. Mostly adventures in the culinary front is whats going down right now. That is one of the key benefits of living in the province. It leaves one with a lot of time for work on the home front too! Daddy-O has been making inroads in the kitchen as his brood is fond of eating!!!

Here is a simple recipe on how to make your own peanut butter.

All you’ll need are the following:
2 cups of peanuts
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 pinch of salt
sugar to taste


1) Roast the nuts for a few minutes in the oven in high heat (make sure to turn the nuts over once in awhile so as not to burn em)
2) Take out the skin (man, this is the tedious part)
3) Blend nuts in a mixer or blender. Add a little olive oil to make it easier to get nuts to grind and oil up.
4) Add a pinch of sugar for a little sweetness factor
5) Don’t forget to add a pinch of salt as well so that the peanut butter keeps
6) Once you get a pasty like consistency, the butter is ready for bottling. Be sure to use recycled bottles to help out the planet.
