Which peanuts to choose?

To make peanut butter, I take unsalted roasted peanuts (the unsalted side is important because otherwise it would be really too salty! Nothing prevents you from adding a pinch of salt if you wish during the recipe).

Commercially, some unsalted roasted peanuts contain or do not contain sunflower oil: be aware that both work in this recipe. It’s as you prefer!

How to make peanut butter?

  1. We place the peanuts on a plate
  2. We roast them baked
  3. We leave them cool
  4. We pour the peanuts into the mixer robot
  5. We mix, we mix!
  6. Pour the peanut butter obtained in an airtight jar

NB: the complete list of ingredients and the detailed recipe are given at the bottom of the page.

My tips for making peanut butter successfully

  • I never miss the oven roasting stage : this is what gives peanut butter its unique deep flavor!
  • continue mixing until see a liquid/creamy texture : the power of your robot may require a few more minutes of mixing, this is not a problem at all.
  • if you like it peanut butter with pieces : set aside some roasted peanuts and add them just at the end of mixing, you will have small pieces left in your peanut butter.

How to store it properly?

Peanut butter can be stored at room temperature if you are sure to consume it within a few days of making it. However, I advise you to put it instead in the fridge, in its hermetically closed pot, to provide the keep 1 months.

The refrigerator also allows firm up its texture if you find it too liquid after mixing.
