Peanut Butter

While searching through different sites for some easy snacks recipes (like this peanut butter cornflake cookie recipe) I found out that (may be coincidentally), almost all those recipes contain peanut butter as one of their major ingredients. I remembered having peanut butter as a child with bread. I love the nutty flavour but I often get bored with the frequent repetition of same food (or flavor). That's why I couldn't risk buying a peanut butter from the store, where, as per my  knowledge, it is not available in very small amount. So I thought of the best alternative which is making it in small scale at home. As a consequence I came across this very easy and quick peanut butter recipe, which goes like this...


Ingredients

  1. Unsalted Roasted Peanuts - 1 cup 
  2. Salt ( can also use kosher or sea salt) - as per your taste
  3. Honey - 1 tbsp ( or more, it's up to you )
  4. Peanut oil or vegetable oil - 1 tbsp ( more or less, basically as per requirement)

Method


  1. Skin the roasted peanuts (if peanuts are not roasted, you can always do that in microwave or gas oven).
  2. Put those in a mixer grinder (or Food processor).
  3. Add salt to it, and grind to make peanut powder.
  4. Now add the honey and grind, to get firm paste.
  5. Now add the oil (it is better to add it in a small amount 1st and then keep increasing the amount as per need) and grind till you get the smooth and a bit shiny peanut butter.
[ P.S : you can also add cocoa powder to make a chocolaty version, but in that case you may have to adjust the honey, depending on whether the cocoa powder is sweetened or not]

You can store it in an air tight container in a refrigerator for a month at least and have it whichever way you like. Till then happy cooking!!
