Peanut butter made in a blender

Peanut butter is a pantry staple that adds a rich, nutty flavor to a variety of dishes, from sandwiches to smoothies. Not only is it delicious, but it’s also incredibly easy to make at home, especially when you have a blender. In this blog, we’ll walk you through the process of creating your very own creamy and delicious peanut butter in just a few simple steps.


How To Make Peanut Butter With Blender

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of roasted peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons of oil (such as vegetable or peanut oil)
  • Salt to taste (optional)

Instructions

  1. The first step is to add your roasted peanuts to the blender and pulse them until they are broken down into a fine powder.
  2. Continue blending and gradually add the oil to the mixture, making sure to scrape down the sides of the blender as needed to ensure an even blend. The mixture will start to form a paste as you continue to blend.
  3. Keep blending until the mixture is smooth and creamy, which can take several minutes. This is the most time-intensive part of the process, but it’s worth it for the final result.
  4. If you prefer, you can add a pinch of salt to taste. Simply pulse the mixture again to combine the salt.
  5. Peanut butter juice is made!

Notes

  • The quality of the peanuts you use will greatly affect the taste and texture of your peanut butter. Opt for high-quality, roasted peanuts that are free from skin and debris. The natural oils in the peanuts will help to create a smooth and creamy texture.
  • To avoid overloading your blender, start by blending the peanuts on a low speed. Gradually increase the speed as the peanuts start to break down and form a paste. This will help to avoid any chunks or clumps in your peanut butter.
  • If your blender is having trouble breaking down the peanuts, consider adding a small amount of oil. Peanut oil is the best option, but you can also use other neutral oils such as canola or sunflower oil. The oil will help to create a smoother and creamier texture.

    How to store

    Peanut butter can be stored at room temperature for up to a month, as long as it is tightly sealed. Make sure to keep it in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight and heat sources, as exposure to light and warmth can cause the oil to go rancid and change the taste of the peanut butter.

    If you plan to store peanut butter for a more extended period, such as six months, it is recommended to refrigerate it. The cooler temperature of the fridge helps slow down the oxidation process that leads to rancidity. When refrigerating peanut butter, ensure it is in an airtight container to prevent moisture absorption and contamination from other foods.

    Freezing peanut butter is a great way to extend its shelf life. Peanut butter can be stored in the freezer for up to a year, but make sure to transfer it to a freezer-safe container. It is also essential to remove as much air as possible to prevent freezer burn.
