Make your own Peanut Butter

Take a deep breath. I will help you continue to make PB&J's for the kiddos. Simply make your own peanut butter. Have I done it? Nope, but it sounds easy. Apparently all you do is grab your organic peanuts, almonds, cashews etc., toss them into your food processor and blend them until your preferred consistency. You may need to add some oil to get there but maybe not. Give it a try. If you are really serious about always making your own and you want to spend $40, you could invest into The Homemade Peanut Butter Factory. I bet their sales are booming right now.

*1 cup nuts of your choice
*1 1/2 teaspoons oil (peanut oil preferred)
*1/4 teaspoon salt (easy if you are using salted nuts)

Put all ingredients in a blender or a food processor. Blend until mixture is spreadable. You may need to stop blending and scrape the sides occasionally. Store the mix in the refrigerator.
If the oil and peanut butter separate, stir before serving.

We also use the grinder at Whole Foods to make it--super fun for the kids to see their own nut butter squirt out of the machine!
