Home made Peanut Butter

Other than our daily bread this is probably the second most used "recipe" that I make in the Thermomix . I say "recipe" but it's as easy as pie. This makes a large jar so you can increase or decrease the ingredients as needed. Keep an eye on the peanuts in the oven, they don't take long to turn golden, you want them to lose their rawness without adding too much colour as this dries them out and you will need to add more oil to compensate. This home-made peanut butter has more body than shop bought and will dry out a little in the jar, BUT it is still quite the most delicious Peanut Butter ever. You can substitute Maple Syrup for the honey if you wish.


300 grams Raw Peanuts ready for the oven
After being roasted in oven
In the Thermomix with Salt, Honey, Cinnamon and oil
After being blitzed for 10 seconds, more to go
Smooth, darkly roasted, sweet and salty Peanut Butter
mmm...so Delicious

Ingredients

300 grams Raw Peanuts
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Salt
30 grams Honey
60 grams Rice Bran Oil

Method

Preheat oven to 100 C
Spread raw peanuts over a flat oven tray, that is lined with baking paper
Bake till golden brown, about 20 minutes
Into Thermomix bowl, add all above ingredients
Chop for 10 seconds on speed 4
Scrape down sides
Mix for a further 10 seconds on speed 4
Again scrape down sides
For a smooth peanut butter, slowly increase speed from 1 to 7 for 1 - 2 minutes, and, you guessed it, scraping down sides every 30 seconds
This should give you a smooth, silky peanut butter
Store in a glass jar in the fridge (at the back, behind the broccoli, because it is so delicious just by the spoonful) not that I have ever done that
