a tribute to nut-based spreads  
almond nut butter
brazil nut butter
cashew nut butter
hazelnut butter
peanut butter
pecan nut butter
pumpkin seed butter
soy nut butter
sunflower seed butter
tahini butter

and now, let us discuss how to make our own peanut butter.  this will come in handy for oh so many reasons, such as...

1.  all 1455 housemates being poor.
2.  a peanut butter culprit lurks through kitchen cabinets stealing all of jamal's peanut butter.
3.  katie shaw will learn to love peanut butter if we can add chocolate chips to it.
4.  katie hughes already eats peanut butter with everything, and can at least now make a jar with her own face on the label.

so without further ado:



Use approximately 2 Tablespoons of Oil for every Cup of Peanuts. You can also add 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Peanuts do have a lot of oil already in them. If you use a peanut with a lot of oil, like Spanish peanuts, you do not have to add as much additional oil.

A good blend that requires no additional oil is 1 Cup of Spanish peanuts and 1 Cup of Virginia Peanuts.


To make the peanut butter, all you have to do is put your peanuts and oil in the blender and whip them together.

If you want your peanut butter chunky, remove about 1/4 Cup of the peanuts before your begin blending the peanuts and oil. When the mixture is almost blended, add the nuts. Puree it a few more times, to break up the nuts and finish the blending.

 Here is your chance to be creative! The above recipe is very plain. If you are going to the effort of doing it yourself, make it special. Use some delicious macadamia nuts for the chunks, or add some honey for the oil.

You can also add pecans, sunflower seeds, and other nuts, some honey for the oil, or even some chocolate or butterscotch chips.
