Homemade Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is just about as American as apple pie. And I think that at one time or another, when my kids were little, they subsisted entirely on the stuff. I prefer the healthiest kind available (freshly ground organic) but discovered that I could grind my own at home for a fraction of the cost. Kids love to help -- pushing the button on the food processor is a favorite activity of my children -- and the delectable flavor is well worth the small effort. It must be stored in the refrigerator, but honestly, it's so good it won't last long. I've even caught my husband sneaking spoonfuls. I'm sure you'll find it tasty too and about as easy as well, pie.



  1. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade, whiz the peanuts until finely ground and beginning to get pasty. This may take a couple of minutes.
  2. Add oil and honey and pulse about 10 more times until completely incorporated.
  3. Taste for salt or sweetness and add salt or honey to taste.
  4. Put in a 1/2 pint mason jar or similarly sized container and store in the refrigerator.
