Peanut butter is a food spread made from ground, dry-roasted peanuts like salt, sweeteners, and emulsifiers. Peanut butter is popular in many countries.
The United States is a leading exporter of peanut butter and itself consumes $800 million of peanut butter annually. Peanut butter is served as a spread on bread, toast, or crackers, and used to make sandwiches and notably the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It is also used in a number of breakfast dishes and desserts, like peanut-flavored granola, crepes, smoothies, cookies, brownies, or croissants. It is very similar to any other nut butters like that of cashew butter and almond butter.
It only takes just four simple steps to make your peanut butter. It is very easy, you’ll be making it often! If the mixture isn’t creamy enough, just add a teaspoon of oil and start the processor again. Continue adding oil, a teaspoon at a time, till getting the consistency of your desire. Be careful, though. In case, you add too much oil, you may make the peanut butter too thin.
Take around 50 roasted peanuts and coarsely chop them. Do not want to crush them completely, though. Set them aside. Process the remaining nuts and add oil if required, until the mixture reaches the consistency you like. Add the coarsely chopped peanuts and mix until well combined.
