That was it. I refuse to be dictated to, and be told what I can or cannot buy, or where from. I decided to make my own !
It was actually ridiculously easy provided you have a gadget similar to the famous Magic Bullet and you can have fresh peanut butter jelly sandwich in less than 3 minutes. The proof is in the video.
The texture was in fact much creamier and not as dry as the bought ones. And you can actually smell and taste the peanut. Once you have tried some homemade peanut butter, you won't want to go back to that tasteless storebought 'paste'. Plus you know exactly what ingredients has been used.
Yield : > ½ cup
150gm (1 cup) roasted peanuts
½ tsp peanut oil or onion oil
¼ tsp salt
1. Place all the peanuts into cup of the bullet. Use the flat blade and process until the nuts are roughly broken up.
2. Add oil and salt. Change to the cross blade. Continue to pulse (shaking and scraping the sides of the container every now and then). As you process you will notice the mixture will become more liquid and oily. Process until you are happy with the texture.
