Homemade Peanut Butter – How to

Hello Everyone!

I hope this finds you all well!
Just another Saturday around here… I had planned on making some homemade peanut butter and posting how to on here …

Here’s how that played out for me.

 

So the instructions say to shell 2 cups of unsalted roasted peanuts.

I’m a maverick I bought salted…
TAKE THAT PINTEREST PIN!

OK, so we had to shell two cups of these – which is relatively simple.
and tedious
and boring
and lame
and suckalicious
But we did it – as a team!

Then,

take your 2 cups and add them to your food processor

Ah yes, put it all in the good old Ninja and get ready to go to town on that button.

The recipe says to pulse for 30 seconds and then process for 3 minutes.

So, basically you’re going to tear the peanuts to shreds – and by shreds I mean WE WANT A FINE PEANUT MIST.
(also the recipe says if you have trouble with them being too dry you can add a little bit of a neutral oil, like canola.)

Unfortunately, at this exact moment in the space time continuum, the reasons I want a Vitamix become blaringly clear…..

See how it looks kind of blurry on the stem there?
That’s not the camera
My ninja is stripped…. I couldn’t be less enthused.

I am currently writing this while my daughters do an easter craft and eat two cups of shelled and salted peanuts.

At least they are happy. The End
