Below is a differnt kind of peanut...
Peanut butter has always tasted good to me. I like peanut butter on the classic PB&J, as well as in cookies. Even Jordan, Gabriel and Sarah love peanut butter. They eat a lot of peanut butter-especially with apples. Gabriel and Sarah will even request what we call a peanut-butter-lolly. This silly idea came to me one afternoon when we were out of bread. I simply swirled the spoon inside of the peanut butter jar and gave it to them, as-is. They loved it! In our house, this snack has become very popular.
Between the sandwiches, apples and lollies, we go through a jar of peanut butter in 2-3 days. Can you believe that means we are paying close to $20 per week in PB?! It occurred to me yesterday, why not make our own? For $1.50 per pound at Whole Food's, I bought enough to make our very own jar. That $1.50 made a whole jar of peanut butter. Making my own peanut butter is a monthly savings of close to $57! Peanut butter sandwiches anyone? It's all you can eat at my house!
I know that I've seen a homemade peanut butter recipe in Martha Stewart Living. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it anywhere! Please check her website for exact directions. Below is my own version.
Add the 3 cups of peanuts to the food processor. Mix until desired texture is reached.
A little dry? That's okay. Add oil- about a tablespoon or so.
How do you like to eat your peanut butter?
