honey roasted peanut butter

When I was in 4th grade, we had to do a demonstration in front of the class. I don’t remember what my demonstration was which really isn’t all that surprising because I tend block out anything that has to do with me speaking or performing in front of others. Then again, I don’t even remember my teacher’s name.

But what I do remember is that some kid in my class did a demonstration for what he called an apple sandwich. I don’t remember the kid’s name, and I don’t remember why he called it an apple sandwich (I mean, it’s not really a sandwich, hello?). Still, I was blown away by this idea, this apple sandwich. Here it is in a nutshell: cut an apple in half and remove the core, put a spoonful of peanut butter on each half. And… eat it. Mind-blowing, isn’t it?

Anyway, let’s make some peanut butter…

What you’ll need:

food processor

A food processor

honey roasted peanuts

And some nuts. I used a 16 ounce bag of honey roasted peanuts (yum!).

What to do:

making peanut butter

Dump all of the nuts into the food processor and attach the lid.

Turn the food processor on… not pulse, but on. Let things whir around…

If you like chunky peanut butter, check under the hood after about 1-2 minutes.

If you like creamier peanut butter, let things whir some more…

After about 3-4 minutes, behold: creamy peanut butter.

A 16 ounce bag of nuts makes about a pint of peanut butter. I had a semi-duh moment when I realized that fact. “A pint’s a pound the world around” or in more duh-worthy words: 16 ounces = 1 pound = 1 pint = 16 ounces.

Store the peanut butter in the refrigerator like you would the natural peanut butters you can buy.

Now go put peanut butter on something and enjoy.

I tried making home made PB some years ago. The recipe added oil to peanuts but the result was horribly greasy and we threw it away! I must try again without the oil: though perhaps a small quantity to start off. I love the idea of using honey roasted nuts. Most PB’s have some sugar added, so I suppose ordinary roasted nuts with a little added honey might be an alternative.
Thank you!!

Wow, really nothing else in there but peanuts? I totally always thought there were additional add ins but I love the purity of this! Maybe a little honey would be a delicious but otherwise it looks great. Yum!!
