This is for you Paisley Jade and anyone else who wants to have a go.
I buy a budget bag of peanuts with their skin on and nothing done to them. (About $5)
Then I ‘dry roast’ the peanuts until the skins go a nice dark colour and they smell nutty. They are much nicer to eat like this too. Dry roasting is just spreading them out in a roasting pan so they are 1 layer all over and roasting them say 160 degrees C or somewhere about that. You don’t need to add anything else.
Once they have cooled put some (you’ll have to judge that for yourself I’m no measurer folks!) in the food processor – you can add salt if you like it at this point.
Get the processor going and add a little oil at a time – I used peanut oil – until it reaches a nice consistency and your required level of smoothness. It’s never going to be totally like smooth peanut butter they sell, just in case you were wondering.
Be warned you will eat more of this because it tastes SO good! You may also need to try a spoonful or so just to make sure it meets your standards.
The peanut butter will be much darker than a shop bought one because of the roasting.
Put in a jar/jars and enjoy. x
