Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe - How to make peanut butter at home

Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe
Mittu loves peanut butter so I started to try it at home.It is not only cheap, its more healthier than store bought ones and the best part is that you can customize it as per your liking.There are 2 varieties of peanut butter available here one is the creamy one and other is the crunchy one, the main difference is in their names itself.Mittu likes the creamy one so I usually make it that way but its upto your liking and preference.

We use peanut butter for bread,chapathi or sometimes eat as such too.

Homemade Creamy Peanut Butter - This version is with honey and sugar but nowadays I am using powdered jaggery / jaggery syrup for making peanut butter.

  2. Now remove the center white part  and discard it(this step is purely optional but I recommend if you are going to give this peanut butter for kids), amma says its pitham not sure of what its called in english.

My Notes:

  • The texture is purely your choice, if you want it crunchy then grind less.I wanted smooth peanut butter so grinded accordingly.
  • Add odourless cooking oil.
  • I have tried with jaggery syrup and honey too.
  • If you are using jaggery as such then use cleaned jaggery.
  • You can even use peanuts with skin but that will give a slightly bitter taste.
  • I used my mixer jar, you can use your food processor too.
  • If you want chunk peanut butter then reserve a handful of peanuts and add at the final stage, give a quick pulse so that the peanut pieces come here and there while eating.

  1. Hi Sharmi, nice recipe. Really very easy and time saving one. For morning school hurry burry packing, its really handy. Your photographs showing the texture and even taste..... so creamy and yummy.... one doubt, why you say keep it in fridge after 2 days... any specific reason.....? Do you think if we keep out, it will be there after two days.... only empty bottle.....

  2. Amma says coorectly, it gives pitham. If we split and take out that sprout/mullai its good. Another way we can be sure of all nuts are good one, if we use full ones some of them may spoiled and make whole thing bad. Removing skin, Splitting into two and checking is really a must step in all kind of peanut cooking.

    In a movie Actor Shivaji too quote abt this, I forgot the name of the movie, He and Saritha travels in train every day, he buys groundnuts and while eating he reserves few and says abt peanuts good and bad and compare our live with it. Amma's words reminded that. Thanks Amma.

  6. For people in the US, it is opposite, Sharmi. Buying peanuts in Indian store will be more expensive than ready-made peanut butter from any grocery store.
