Yes, you can make homemade peanut butter. It’s real – and it’s spectacular.
What would motivate you to make homemade peanut butter? Well, for starters, do you find it annoying when you see trans fats and sugars on your peanut butter label? Are you nervous about all of the recent nut butter recalls due to salmonella? And are you tired of paying for peanut butter packaging, labeling, and advertising? All of these are good enough reasons to make your own.
Our friend Andrew over at Eating Rules has a great challenge he calls October Unprocessed. It’s about eating entirely unprocessed foods for a month. We’re proud to have a special guest post for October Unprocessed on making your own peanut butter. Spoiler: It is really, really easy – and you can make it as creamy or chunky as you like it. (And for those of us who like a “saltier” peanut butter, you can adjust that to your preference too.)
Check it out! (And while you’re at it, take the October Unprocessed pledge. )
P.S. What can you do with peanut butter? Eat it in a sandwich, use it as dip, make a peanut butter pie. Also, for something a little different, we recommend these tasty Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies.
