I had no idea how easy it is to make your own peanut butter at home! We go through A LOT of it at my house and I'm sure will be going through quite a bit more since it's summer time and the kids are going to be eating at home everyday. I had been trying to only buy natural PB at the store but it's rather expensive and still has lot's of sugar in it. So I saw somewhere on the web how to make your own at home. You do need a food processor which I just happened to get for Christmas this year! Dump in your peanuts. I used a mix of unsalted and low salt and added just a bit of sugar and turn that sucker on. At first it looks like it's just chopping the nuts up like this
But keep going and I promise it will all come together!
I am thinking I should have blended it a bit longer since it was still a bit "gritty" but hey, now I know for next time!
