Summer in France is quite long this year, so it’s not until mid-September that there starts to be chilly days. Although it’s not yet frezzingly cold, the chill is enough for me to feel like snuggling in my blanket, read or watch something, and eat some of my favourite food. This chilly weather makes me think of peanut butter. I don’t know why but peanut butter always give me a very warm feeling, and when I feel like having a snack, a few slices of apple with peanut buttle is a very tasty and healthy choice.
Peanut butter can be used for breakfast with bread, o you can serve it with apple, banana or carrot as a snack, add a spoonful into a fruit smoothie, make a dipping sauce, or you can even use it in baking, the possibilities are endless. Making peanut butter is one of the simplest thing in the world, you only need to know how to turn on your blender/food processor, the ingredients are simple too soit’s worth it to make yourself a jar right
Công thức tiếng Việt: Tự làm bơ đậu phộng
Preparation time: 5 minutes (time taken to open a bag of peanut and plug in the blender )
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Yields: 1 300ml-jar
- 200g peanut, shelled and grilled
- A pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon of honey (optional)
I bought shelled and grilled peanuts from the supermarket. If you have the fresh type, be sure to grill and shel them.
Add the peanut, honey and salt into a food processor and process. Stop the processor once in a while to scrape down the sides. The peanut will break into small pieces in the beginning…
…then the peanuts will start releasing its natural oil, and the mixture will start to thicken up…
…blend until the mixture is smooth and you’re done.
If you like having small pieces of peanut in your butter, don’t process it for too long, and if you prefer smooth peanut butter just process until the mixture is smooth. I use a food processor so it can process dry food, but if you use a blender make sure you break the peanut into small pieces before blending.
Peanut butter can be stored in an air-tight container for up to 1 month in the fridge.
