Allegra McEvedy – Homemade Peanut Butter

So very easy and so very delicious. You really can taste the difference.

Makes a small jar, which is enough as it’s so easy to do and is much nicer fresher.

Ingredients:

150g peanuts Fairtrade and pref Malawian, raw or lightly roasted

- Half teaspoon Maldon sea salt

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 170°C

Spread the peanuts on a baking tray and roast for 20 mins, shuffling them half way through until a light golden colour – even if you’ve bought the lightly roasted ones they are normally still very pale so this not only heats their oils up but gets them a better colour as well.

Cool for a five mins then tip into a blender and whizz. I like mine some larger pieces of nut in, not all smooth, but essentially just keep blending until you get a consistency you like.

Tip into a bowl and stir in the salt and a couple of tablespoons water. Mix that in thoroughly, and leave to sit for half an hour.

When you go back to it I found it needed about the same amount of water again as it had gone a bit stiff.

Transfer to a sterilized jar and keep out of the fridge.
