Homemade Nut Butter

I’m constantly buying lovely crunchy peanut butter to spread on my morning toast so lord knows why it has only just dawned on me that I could make my own for a fraction of the price and none of the nasties that tend to sneak in to the shop bought stuff

This might also just be the easiest recipe (if I can even call it that) I’ve so far attempted.  Plus you can pimp it up however you like with other nuts (cashew, macadamia and almond all grind up well) and even chocolate for your very own homemade nutella.  These quantities will fill a 350g tub…

Homemade peanut butter

  • Tip around 300g of roasted salted peanuts into a food processor (I made a mixture of two thirds peanut to one third almond).  If you’re using unsalted nuts add a good few pinches of salt and 2-3 tbsp of brown sugar
  • Grind thoroughly using the metal blade until the ground nuts crumbs start to form a paste. If it’s looking a little dry, add some sunflower oil (a tablespoon at a time) until it’s come together to form a thick and almost glossy paste
  • Spoon in to a scrupulously clean container and store in the fridge and start spreading on toast, crumpets, carrots and pretty much anything else you can lay your hands on (it’s also particularly moreish with Tiptree raspberry seeded jam)
