Here in Italy, if you are lucky, you will find peanut butter at major supermarkets. However, the price is outrageous. So what do I do? I make it myself! And boy oh boy…..I tell you, I will never go back to store bought again! It’s so much more tastier (no preservatives here) and healthier. Just try it yourself and see the difference! =)
-1 cup of roasted and salted peanuts (…..if you prefer, you can buy unsalted and just add the amount of salt you wish)
-3 to 4 TBSP of peanut oil
Add the oil to your mini food processor or blender (……I use a mini food processor because I find it easy to use and especially to wash! If you are looking for a mini food processor, check out the reviews on Amazon.com)
Next, add the peanuts……and voilà….the best homemade peanut butter =) It needs to be kept in the fridge and can stay about 1 month…..if it even lasts that long! Try it and let me know what you think =)
Happy peanut butter making!
