Cousin Kelly’s Organic Peanut Butter

Posted by on Saturday, December 19th, 2009

For most of my growing up years, I was an only child.  I remember being so very bored at home, and wanting someone to play with.  I cherished the times during summer breaks when my cousin Kelly and I would spend a week at Grandmother’s house.  We would giggle and laugh for hours.  I also recall what a picky little eater Kelly was.  Granddaddy would prop Kelly on his lap and proceed to spoon feed her mouthfuls of peanut butter straight from the jar.  It was no surprise to me when I recently discovered Kelly making her own peanut butter and raving about it.

I thought this would be something neat to post and share. So I went “on the road” to photograph this process.  I couldn’t believe how quick and easy it was to make peanut butter.  If you can locate organic peanuts and ingredients, you will have a superior peanut butter to spread.

  • 1 pound dry roasted unsalted peanuts (organic if possible)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 ¾ Tablespoon organic sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Pour all ingredients into food processor.  Blend for 5 minutes, or until smooth.

Scrape down sides of food processor bowl half way through the blending process.

Store peanut butter in airtight container in refrigerator.

Kelly and I still giggle and laugh a lot when we are together.  She’s the best!
