Homemade peanut butter is something I have been making since we moved to Hungary as it was initially difficult to find and it remains quite expensive… To be honest I am a little bashful about posting this as a recipe as homemade peanut butter is not difficult to make and I have no idea if this is something everyone knows, but I certainly didn’t. Since we moved here I have taken to making lots of things at home that I would normally buy, everything from ketchup to sweet chili sauce. But none of them are 1 ingredient recipes, yes seriously homemade peanut butter requires ONE ingredient!!!!!
Peanuts, peanut butter is just bloody peanuts, homemade peanut butter requires nothing more than peanuts and a blender… Why on earth did I not know this and how much money have a I given to manufacturers of peanut butter, when I say manufacturers I mean thieving *+!%%”+”(‘s, anyway enough of my ranting… Seriously give homemade peanut butter a go, it takes very little time and you can add in your own flavourings later, sesame oil is great, chili rocks, molasses adds a wonderful bitter sweet note and a little salt is always nice!
Homemade Peanut Butter is so simple to make, I have no idea who decided to put it in jar and pretend it is tough to make!
Course Side Dish
250gPeanuts.Shelled and peeled
Salt to taste .Optional
Black Treacle.Or Molasses, optional
Preheat your oven to 150°C.
Place the peanuts in the oven and allow to slowly roast for 30-40 minutes, check on them regularly and shake in the pan to ensure the do not burn.
Place the peanuts in a blender and blitz, at first it will look like a powder and it is difficult to believe it will form a butter, just keep going, and you will end up with a peanut butter.
When a butter has been formed add in molasses or black treacle for sweetness and salt, however neither are really required!
I feel like a complete fraud posting this but nowhere near as much of a fraud as the companies that do this and stick it in a jar and pretend there is a secret to peanut butter... Mix it up play with other nuts, it just works!
