Recipe

Peanut – 1 cup

Sea salt or pink salt – 1/4 teaspoon

Peanut oil – 2 tablespoon, optional

Method

1. Dry roast the peanut on low medium heat till peanut becomes crisp and slightly change it’s colour. Don’t make too brown. And peanut should be roasted well to preserve for a long time.

2. Or microwave on high power for 2 minutes. After one minute stir and press the start button.

3. Take out the peanut and stir well. Microwave again for 1-2 minutes. Every oven takes different time. I had to microwave for 4 minutes. Check and stir after every 1 minute. Don’t make too brown. Check out the video recipe above .After roasting well you can peel the peanut easily.

4. Let the peanut cool down. Take out all the peanut on a kitchen napkin or any cotton cloth. Wrap and rub with your palm to remove the skin of peanut. Separate the peanut and peel.

5. Grind the peanut. Scrap the sides with a spoon or knife and grind again.

6. Now peanut will release oil. You can use it as a spread if you don’t want to use oil.

7. Add 2 tablespoon peanut oil in the grinder jar. If you want your peanut butter slightly sweet add 1 tablespoon honey at this stage. I didn’t. If you are using honey add only 1 tablespoon oil instead of 2 tablespoon. You can also add cocoa powder or chocolate chips or any herbs of your choice. Grind again to make smooth creamy butter.

8. Store the peanut butter in covered container in refrigerator for later use.

Notes

1. Roast the peanut properly for longer shelf life. You can store your homemade peanut butter in refrigerator for a month.

2. Any herbs or chocolate can be added while grinding the peanut. You can try different flavour every time.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
