I am one of those rare people who cannot tolerate bacon. Just.. no. No bacon. However peanut butter is another story. I dearly love the stuff.
What I do not dearly love about store bought peanut butter is all the additives. It is just loaded in unhealthy stuff. Even the "natural" variety has added oils. Why? There is plenty of natural oil hanging out in the peanuts.
What I discovered is making peanut butter at home is incredibly easy - if you have a food processor or blender.
Step One: Purchase roasted peanuts. We buy the unsalted variety and do not add salt. Feel free to add it to taste. If you purchase salted roasted peanuts your peanut butter will be too salty. Go with roasted/unsalted.
Step Two: Pour peanuts into food processor.
Step Three: Turn on food processor.
Step Four: Let it run until it is peanut butter. We like creamy and it takes about 4 to 5 minutes. If you like crunch, go a little less time.
Step Five: Pour into jars and keep refrigerated so it doesn't separate. That is all there is to it!
So, store bought ingredient list:

Give it a go. Let me know if you do.
