Also on bread

I've been wanting to make homemade peanut butter for ages.
I remember my mum making it when we were young and thinking it was yuk, because it didn't taste like the bought stuff.

I was young and foolish.

This stuff is so good I think I will never buy peanut butter again.

With this peanut butter and our strawberry jam our morning toast is wonderful at the moment.
To make this ::
I roasted about 2 cups of peanuts in the oven for about 10 minutes then put them in my blender and whizzed them up adding a little oil until I had a nice paste. Then seasoned with a bit of salt.
Easy peasy.

Oh YES, homemade nut butters are WAY better (tasting and for you!)...Hey, BTW, did I ever tell you we loved your bread recipe you shared awhile back?? Well we did :)!

Last time I made peanut butter the food processor blew up...but it was worth it because it was sooooo yummy. And now I have to go and look up your bread recipe, judging by the comment above!

what kind of oil did you use?

Hi Enola
I hope you check back here as your email address didn't show up.
I used grape seed oil, I prefer grape seed to olive oil as it doesn't really have any flavour to compete with the peanut flavour.
But you could use any oil that you like.
