Peanut Butter Recipe

I love it when my helpers bring home kilos of peanuts from the province. I make my own peanut butter ala Ludy’s Peanut butter way. I get to choose the peanuts making sure they are not rotten or moldy. I never know the quality of peanuts used for peanut butter . Making my own means I can control the quality. You will need a food processor to make this peanut butter.

Ingredients

1 kilo peeled peanuts (buy them unroasted, with the peel removed. Should appear white and dry)
1 cup honey ( or 2 cups refined sugar)
1/4 cup vegetable oil (optional if sticky texture is desired)
Salt to taste

(you can cut the recipe in half or 500 grams peanuts if you want to experiment this recipe)

Important: Make sure your utensils are washed properly. It is best to use hot soapy water to clean the food processor, and the kawali where peanuts are in contact with. Do the same with the mixing cups and , storage containers.

1. Heat your kawali at low heat as high heat burns the outer layer of the nuts quite fast. Make sure your kawali has a thick buttom so that the peanuts don’t burn easily.

2. Keep roasting the peanuts and stir constantly for even roasting. This may take about 15 to 20 minutes. Cool.

3. After cooling the roasted nuts, mix it with the oil and honey, and pour the mixture into the food processor. Scrape down the food processor bowl, if needed, when processing the peanuts.

4. Process the peanut mixture until it’s very smooth. Taste the freshly made peanut butter and add a touch of salt, if needed. Add more oil if needed to have desired sticky consistency.

5. Store your smooth peanut butter in a sealed container in the refrigerator. It will keep for 2 weeks.

Optional for Chunky peanut butter.

1. Set aside 1/4 cup of roasted peanuts and set aside.

2. Mix the rest of the peanuts with honey and oil, and pour the mixture into the food processor.

3. Process the mixture until it’s very smooth, then add in the peanuts that you had set aside in number 1. Scrape down the food processor bowl, if needed, when processing the peanuts.

4. Process a few more seconds to come up with the chunks in your chunky peanut butter. Taste the freshly made peanut butter and add a touch of salt, if needed.

5. Store your smooth peanut butter in a sealed container in the refrigerator. It will keep for 2 weeks.
