Peanut Butter

This American staple can really eat up your budget.  
Surprisingly, peanut butter is not

only cheaper to make at home, but         healthier too.

4 cups shelled, salted dry-roasted peanuts
1 tablespoon plus
1 teaspoon safflower or
other mild-flavored vegetable oil

For creamy style: Using a food processor or blender, and working 
in batches, process the peanuts and the oil until the desired 
consistency is reached.  Stop and scrape down the processor 
container sides as needed.

For chunky style: Using a food processor or blender, coarse chop 
about 1/c of the peanuts; set aside.  Working in batches, process 
the remaining peanuts with the oil until the desired consistency 
is reached.  Scrape down the processor container sides as needed.  
Stir in the chopped peanuts.

To store: Scrape the peanut butter into a clean container with an 
airtight lid.  Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

Makes 1 cup
