Say hello to a jar of home-made peanut butter. I am never buying it jarred again. Do you know how embarrassingly easy this is?
200g bag roasted salted peanuts
2 tbsp olive oil
Take a handful of the peanuts and chop roughly. Take the rest of the peanuts and zuzz with the oil. Stir the chopped nuts back in. End.
How awesome is that? It never occurred to me that was even *possible* to make peanut butter at home. It always seemed like it should be the result of lots of complicated processing, and exotic ingredients (considering the differences in flavour of all the brands), but no. And this has no sugar in it! I hate sugar in my peanut butter. And I love salt. This is completely perfect.
Wow. Let me tell you, sitting here eating my home-made peanut butter on slices of my home-made failbread has given me such a warm layer of smug that I may have to open the windows. And… for some time I’ve been searching (unsuccessfully) to find not-peanut nut butters, but now I can just make my own. I could make it even cheaper (and less salty) by getting uncooked nuts…
Wait a minute.
I could use chilli peanuts. Chilli peanut butter. CHILLI. PEANUT. BUTTER. That thought is so unspeakably awesome I think I need a lie down.
(I’m not going to, though. My turbos have turned up so I have to go play with them. Thank you English Yarns!)
