We’ve been talking about making peanut butter at work now for some time and finally today is the day I was going to make some when I got home. Now granted I should probably get out more because when the highlight of my day is making peanut butter – well I’m just saying it might need a face lift!
But I was excited so I got my bag of peanuts out of the cupboard along with my small blender and I was going to see if I could make this work.
Well I probably should have looked up how to do this before I started, but when how hard can it be right?
So I put half of the nuts in the blender along with a little honey and started the blender up.
It really didn’t do much and all I had was some chopped up peanuts and a far cry from peanut butter!
So more honey went in and cranked her up again
Not much happened again
OK, so I figured if I would just keep blending the heck out of it sooner or later something is going to happen!
So in when a little sunflower oil and I turned on the blender again. Finally I could see that we were making at least some progress!
Well at the end of all of this I did end up with some really nice peanut butter and it was definitely worth the hassle! Now that I know what to expect I definitely would make this again.
