Homemade Peanut Butter

 I made Peanut Butter! No salt, oil, high fructose corn syrup...nothing! Just Peanuts! De Lish!

First you roast your raw nuts in a 250 degree oven, sirring frequently, until your nuts are lightly brown.

Then bring out your food processor, add cooled nuts and chop. You'll have to stop and scrape the sides every so often. Don't quit until it smooths into a butter consistency. It takes a while.

Ta-Da! Peanut butter! Yumm...although it is my weakness!
You can add honey to sweeten it up or add Cinnamon or another spice, but I like mine just the way it is!
Next I'm going to try peanuts without skins on them, I think it made it a bit bitter. And I'm going to chop some peanuts after the fact for crunchy peanut butter!
