Have you ever wondered whether you can make peanut butter at home? Why yes, you can! Try using it for these delicious Sweet Crepes or this amazing Peanut Butter and Jam Delight, great for an afternoon tea.
Our secret to make the best peanut butter is to mix a little maple syrup in it. Worth a try!
Makes: about 10 servings | Preparation time: 15 mins
- Peanuts: 100 g
- Maple syrup: 1 tsp
- Sunflower oil: 1 tsp
- Water: as needed
Use a food processor to blend the peanuts in a cream. Make sure to use the food processor only at slow speed, otherwise the oils naturally secreted by the peanuts will overheat and the mixture will burn.
The cream will initially be very coarse and with a quite thick consistency; continue to blend the nuts until the cream becomes smoother and less firm, almost liquid. The whole process should take about 5 to 8 minutes.
When the cream has reached the desired consistency, add to it maple syrup and the sunflower oil. Mix again in the food processor, always at a very slow speed. If your homemade peanut butter is too thick, add a teaspoonful of water.
Leave the cream to rest for at least 10 minutes.
