Peanut butter, peanut butter, peanut butter. Who does not love peanut butter. Well with the worlds easiest organic peanut butter there is no reason to ever buy peanut butter in the store again. This peanut butter is 100% organic, non-gmo, no additives, preservable and most important of all the best peanut butter you have ever tastes. Ready to learn how you can make the worlds easiest organic peanut butter? Lets get started!
The first time I made home made peanut butter was about two years ago. When I started the actually look at the labels of the food that I bought I was kind of shocked that it contained 10 grams of sugar per 100 grams and that it contained additional salt. Why is it necessary to use added sugar and salt when peanuts already have natural sugar and salt?
We used to buy peanut butter that had an additional layer of oil on top of the peanut butter. The idea was that you stir the oil through the peanut butter to prevent it from going dry. In the beginning you would only eat oil with some peanut butter and about half way through the jar it would be the other way around until the peanut butter would go all dry and hard.
I found some peanut butter recipes but all of them mentioned adding either oil or salt or sugar or all of the above. So I thought what would happen if I do not put any additives in or leave the sugar and salt out? I just tried it and it worked!
How to make the worlds easiest organic peanut butter
How does it work? Buy a bag of roasted in-shell peanuts and peel/de skin the peanuts. Remove the shell and reddish skin as much as possible. If you leave to much skin in you are going to taste it. It takes some time to peel a whole bag but let your partner or children help you out (make sure they do not eat all of the peanuts in the meanwhile 😉). Keep the skinned peanuts in a bowl.
If you buy skinned peanuts in a bag make sure you buy unsalted peanut butter. This peanut butter does not need any salt. The natural salt in peanut butter is more than enough.
When all of the skin is off you can put the peanuts in a foodprocessors. Let is blend on the highest speed. After 30 seconds you have the structure from which you can make peanut sauce (or satay/saté sauce as we say here in the Netherlands). Let is run continuously for 6 minutes the peanuts will turn into a paste.
After about 8 minutes you get a thick peanut butter. If you like the structure you can take it out at that point. I let it run for another 2 minutes and after 10 minutes you have a super creamy peanut butter.
I store it in an old peanut butter jar. The funny thing is that after I made a lot of jars of peanut butter and not one of them has gone dry. The peanut butter stays spreadable.
This peanut butter is organic, gluten free, vegan and delicious.
