Nut butter is readily available at grocery stores, and it comes in a variety of flavors and textures, including crunchy, chocolate peanut, and others. They are just as tasty, but they often include extra sugar, palm oil, and other substances that are not very good for you. That should convince you even more to build your own handmade version. Peanuts are the sole ingredient, and there is no added sugar or fat, and the price is far lower than what is offered commercially.
THE INGREDIENTS LIST:
3 Cups.Of raw shelled peanuts.
3 Tbsp.Of vegetable oil/peanut oil.
¼ Cup.Of sugar, honey, or other sweeteners.
½ Tsp.Of salt.
You may use a skillet or a wok and set the heat to medium. To get the peanuts to a light golden brown color, roast them in the oven while tossing them occasionally.
After adding the oil, continue to roast the vegetables for another minute, or until they reach a golden brown color. Remove the skillet from heat.
While the peanuts are still warm, place them in a blender or food processor. Put the peanuts in the blender and give them several pulses to break them up into smaller pieces.
Now, let the blender run for one minute, after which you should stop it, open the bowl, and use a spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl. At this stage, it will seem rough and dry, but that is quite normal.
Repeat the previous step for an additional minute, then start over again. If you keep doing this, after a certain number of times it will start to get easier to do. Continue until the texture is getting close to what you want it to be.
In the last step, add the sugar/honey and salt, and pulse the ingredients one more until the appropriate consistency is reached. It is important to remember to stop the blender occasionally and scrape the sides to prevent it from overheating.
Now, add the chunky chunks, and give it one or two more bursts of speed just to mix everything together. Place the preserves in a sterile jar, and serve with toasted bread.
