Peanut Butter

We have turned into hippies! Ok, not really, but we have started to become fans of making our own peanut butter! We got the idea a few weeks ago and thought it sounded easy enough to try! So we bought some raw Spanish peanuts and got to roasting! After we roasted the peanuts we threw them in the food processor. After about ten minutes in the food processor we had a very creamy peanut butter. I decided I wanted to try to add some flavor to some of it, so I added some cinnamon, sugar and vanilla to the peanut butter, and it was delicious!

While we were looking for the peanuts at Whole Foods we found a machine they have that grounds up the peanuts for you on the spot. We thought we would give the homemade way a try, but I think we will probably just get some from the user friendly machine in the store. I am not sure if we will ever go through the whole processing of making peanut butter again, but I am definitely sold on fresh peanut butter!
