Peanut butter is an all time favourite snack in our household, but it can be quite expensive. For a jar of the natural, no-sugar added kind, it can retail between 3 and 5. In a bid to save money, and see if I could make it as good as the supermarkets I decided to make a whole, natural peanut butter, with nothing added but a little salt for flavour.



Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 500g jar

Ingredients
600g salted peanuts
3 tblsp groundnut oil


Method
Place the peanuts in a large baking tray. Place in the oven for 10 minutes, removing every 3 minutes to toss and prevent burning.



Remove the roasted peanuts from the oven, they should be golden.



Place the nuts in a food processor and blitz for 2 minutes on the highest setting.



Scrape down the sides and pulse again, this time adding the oil. I use groundnut oil because it is scent-less and has less saturated fat than vegetable.



The result should be a thick peanut butter.



Give it a try



Transfer the butter into a jar - I used a 450g jar, but it would fit better in a 500g jar because I ate quite a bit before transferring it.



Place an airtight lid on top and store in the fridge/cupboard for up to two weeks.

Notes
I bought the supermarkets own brand of basic salted peanuts. I compared them with the more popular, branded KP nuts and they are exactly the same in size, taste and texture. I purchased three bags of peanuts each were 200g at 48 pence a packet. Save money and buy basic, then make your own peanut butter - it's worth it.
