One of my guilty pleasures is the fresh roasted peanut butter from Whole Foods. When it comes out of the grinder, its warm, and literally melts in your mouth. Although it is worth every penny, it is expensive and was eating into my grocery budget.
After researching recipes for homemade peanut butter, I couldnt believe how simple they were. Sold!
I pulled out our ninja blender, tossed in the ingredients, and voila! I will say the second time I made it, I blended it longer and was able to use less peanut oil. The trick is to blend, blend, blend.
Peanuts: My friends family is from Edenton, NC and after a visit there, they sent me home with bags and bags of peanuts. Their friends/family are peanut farmers and I’m so grateful they educated me as to how yummy fresh peanuts are. Didnt even know they farmed peanuts in NC!
