I used to be nuts, but now I’m butter.
When I first got my super blender, I could have the best time just finding stuff to throw in there and blending it to smithereens! Ok, truth is, that’s still all it takes to amuse me. Really. It’s that easy. So this isn’t a recipe – it’s just me having fun.
One day soon I’m going to write a little US / Metric measurement cheat sheet and add it to the resources page, but today ‘s simple lesson is this: 454 grams = 1 pound. See, you learn something new every day!
I’ve seen different recipes for peanut butter and a lot of them tell you to buy unsalted, unroasted, totally natural peanuts, and then roast them, and add salt and oil and some kind of sweetener. But for this, I just bought a bag of normal peanuts that are all ready to pop in your mouth, and I popped them into my blender instead.
And then I blended for about 2 minutes and had a quick peek.
And then I blended them for about 2 more minutes.
And then I used a rubber spatula to scrape out the peanut butter without damaging the blades and I put it in jar. And now I have smooth and creamy, one ingredient, do-it-yourself peanut butter! Yum!
It’s maybe not a reason to go out and buy a power blender, but if you have one, it’s quick and easy. And you too can go from nuts to butter in no time at all!
