Homemade Peanut Butter
1 3/4 cups roasted,skinless unsalted peanuts (about 8 ounces)
1 tbsp peanut oil,grape seed oil or any neutral tasting oil
1/2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
Using my kitchen aid chopper, I placed the unsalted peanuts in the bowl and used the chop button.I processed the mixture until the nuts were grounded into a powder,similar to cornmeal.
When the mixture began to clump I began drizzling in the oil through the spout while processing the mixture.Then I removed the lid and added the honey and salt. I continued processing the mixture until it was smooth or to the consistency I like.
Then I transferred the peanut butter into a covered container and kept in the refrigerator.The peanut butter can also be kept in the fridge for up to a month.It also needs to be stirred if the oil begins to separate and if it becomes harden,let thaw for 10 minutes at room temperature before use.
