Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe Video: We recently had the opportunity to try some homemade peanut butter made by a friend. Amazed by the fresh, creamy deliciousness, we knew we had to make our own.
There are many recipes on the internet for peanut butter, some call for oil, butter and salt. We decided to use store bought roasted salted peanuts. There was no need to add anything except the peanuts. The oil and salt used in the roasting process is enough to give the peanut butter a creamy texture and great flavor.
Using our Kitchenaid food processor we simply poured in the desired amount of peanuts and turned the machine on. Starting with the chop setting and moving up to the puree setting.
The peanuts will go through a couple of stages. First they will turn into a powder, then they will get firm and be almost a peanut ball. Continuing to process the oils, it begins to release and you get the creamy peanut butter. It took us about 3 minutes of processing to achieve the desired consistency.
In just a few minutes time you get delicious peanut butter and the satisfaction of making it yourself! You can purchase the Kitchenaid Food Chopper here for $39.99.
