Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter

We decided to grow peanuts this year. We just had a small plot of them that was about four square feet. I did not clean them up right away and some of them actually started to sprout in the bag. I decided to roast them and make peanut butter out of them.

I washed off the dirt. Then I let them dry.

The next day I put them in the oven at 250 degrees for about three hours.

We shelled them and peeled them. That was a lot more work than I thought it would be!

After that I just ground them up in the blender. I did not put any salt in it since it was such a small batch and I was afraid of adding too much. If we try this gain next year, I will want to grow enough to get about four cups of shelled and peeled peanuts so it blends easier and I will certainly add a bit of salt to the mix. Even without salt, the baby really likes it.
