Homemade Peanut Butter

Alright guys….I have finally tried to make homemade peanut butter! I have thought about it, read about it, and talked about, and not I have finally done it! Lol. Again, I’m a procrastinator. I found a 24 oz jar of lightly salted roasted peanuts at Rite Aid on clearance for $1.50…pretty good deal! Plus, I used +up rewards to buy it so it was practically free! Free peanut butter with no hard to pronounce ingredients? Yes, please. So here is what I did:

1.) pour about 12 oz of peanuts into food processor
2.) process for about 5 mins or until the consistency that you want
3.) add powdered sugar/salt/honey etc to taste. I added a small pinch of salt and about two tbsp of sugar. I loved the nutty flavor and didnt want to cover it up with other flavors.

That’s it folks! It’s so good…especially since its free…for me anyway. 😁 Some recipes I read called for added oil but this peanut butter definitely doesn’t need any extra oil or it would be too runny. Enjoy!

I’m Back

So…. The past two weeks are a prime example of what happens whenever I start a project. I stick with it for a few days and then I miss a day…I think to myself “it’s ok I will do it tomorrow” and I keep telling myself that everyday for weeks! I’m a very accomplished procrastinator and I inherited this gene from my father. (He once decided to tile our kitchen by himself. It took about two years….but it looks fabulous!) Anyway, the point of this post is to let people know I’m not quitting! I am going to stick with this! And I have a wonderful little project to share hopefully tomorrow!!!! I cannot describe how excited I am 😁

Love,
Mrs. Smith 💙
