If you want to know how to make peanut butter, take a look at this simple recipe. There's little to compare with the aroma and taste of freshly made peanut butter. Commercial peanut butters tend to have a lot of salt and sugar added. They also generally contain trans fats so making your own is a good idea.
You will need:
• A food processor
• 300g/10½oz/2 cups of peanuts
• 1 tablespoon of peanut, sunflower or any flavourless oil
• Salt (optional)
For this peanut butter recipe, I like to use shelled unroasted peanuts that are still in their skins. I like to roast the peanuts myself because the fresh roasted flavour is so good - but you can use skinless peanuts if you prefer and you can also use pre-roasted peanuts. This recipe is for unroasted peanuts so if you are using pre-roasted, just skip Step 1 and 2.
