I follow her recipe exactly except that I omitted the sugar and put lesser Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO).
I have some leftover peanuts which I used to make soup. I used them anyway.
Recipe adapted from Food for TotsHere's the Recipe:-
- Rinse peanuts and pat dry with paper towels and leave to air dry.
- Heat up the frying pan with low heat and dry fry (ie fry without oil) until fragrant and skin turns to a darker brown. This takes about 15 minutes for me. Allow the nuts to cool.
- Peel the skin away.
- Blend the nuts. If you have a powerful blender, you can blend all of them together. I did mine in 3 batches
- Scrape the side as and when needed.
- Add in salt and EVOO bit by bit when the nuts become sticky. Continue to process till it become smooth. Taste the peanut butter and adjust seasoning to your liking.
- Pour into a container. If you are not using immediately, you may store in the fridge.

Peanut butter can be an ingredient for other recipes, such as to make peanut filling for Tang yuan (a chinese dessert), make a cake, some biscuits or even some ice cream.
I used some of my newly made peanut butter for the making of Tang yuan with peanut fillings. Also, to compliment my freshly made plain pancakes the next morning. I probably will blog again on peanut butter recipe.
Are you aware that peanut butter has other uses? Below are other uses of peanut butter which I have yet to try. I have tabulated off from the web.
