Food Processor Peanut Butter

Homemade Peanut Butter! Around 1/2 the cost of Adams Natural Peanut Butter


5lbs Peanuts(yeilds about 3.5 lbs shelled nuts)
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp salt(or to taste)

The hardest part....shelling the 5lbs of peanuts!!!! You can but pre shelled nuts and still come out spending far less than a big thing of peanut butter.... The last time I bought Adams it was $11.39 for the BIG one...4lbs size....This recipe yeilds ALMOST 4lbs at a cost of $5.39 for the peanuts and pennies for the oil and salt....the only thing it costs is TIME!

Get them all shelled, I remove the red skins too, you can leave them on if you like,

I place about 1/2 of them in my food processor, with half the salt

 process until they are chopped up well

Turn the processor on high and Slowly add the oil (about 2 TB per batch, more if you like a runnier peanut butter, and process till your desired consistency, chunky or smooth.

Scrape into desired resealable container, Repeat with second half and ENJOY!

Dont forget to stir well right before using!
