    Two important benefits of making your own peanut butter are superior taste and ingredient control. Homemade peanut butter has a fresh flavor not found in store-bought varieties. When you make your own peanut butter, you can leave out the added fats and unhealthy levels of sodium contained in supermarket peanut butter. It is easy to make your own spread, and you do not need a lot of ingredients. The following recipe will make three cups of tasty, inexpensive peanut butter.

    You will need:

    • 3 teaspoons peanut or olive oil
    • 4 cups roasted peanuts
    • 1 teaspoon salt

    1. Place 2 cups of peanuts in blender or food processor.

    2. Add 1 ½ teaspoons of the oil.

    3. Grind the peanuts for three minutes.

    4. Add remaining oil and nuts.

    5. Continue grinding the nut-oil mixture until desired consistency is reached. Blend longer for creamy peanut butter.

    6. Add salt, and mix for one or two minutes.

    Tips:
    • This peanut butter does not contain preservatives, so it must be refrigerated. Keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
    • Stir before using to blend in oil that rises to the top of the peanut butter.
