Change the ingredients you put in depending on your use and taste!
Rosted peanuts Peel off the thin skin and make sure only good kernels are used.

Salt A little goes a long way to enhance the natural sweetness.
Vegetable oil Mix in just the right amount to make it thicker and easier to eat.
Thin peanut skin You can consume the whole healthy components of the peanut skin. It gives off an aroma, but it also has a bitter taste.
Chopped peanuts Chopped peanuts give a crunchy texture to the peanut butter. Add them at the very end.

To make it, just put it in a blender and stir for about 5 minutes!

What are some tips for making peanut butter that won’t go wrong?

  • Peel the peanuts properly and check the kernels. If even one discolored kernel gets in, the aroma will be bad.
  • Peel off any peanuts that stick to the mixer wall and stir repeatedly.
  • It is easier to succeed if the amount of peanuts is about one-third of the mixer’s capacity.
  • If it does not become a paste easily, warm it in the microwave for 30-60 seconds.
  • If it doesn’t turn into a paste easily, add a little vegetable oil and stir with a mixer.
  • If you are using a small miller, chopping the peanuts finely will make the paste smoother.
The peanuts will soak up the oil as they warm up and become a paste all at once.

Storing Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is surprisingly quite dry and can be stored at room temperature for up to four months if water is avoided. All of the recipes above can also be stored at room temperature.


Plus, it’ ll keep even longer in the fridge! In the summer, I suggest keeping them refrigerated! The quality of the product will not be affected, although it will harden when cooled. To avoid condensation, leave it at room temperature with the lid closed for a while to thaw naturally before using.

Refrigeration slows down the oxidation of oil!

When stored at room temperature in the summer, the oil and peanuts may separate into two layers, but this is not a problem at all, so stir well before use.

Separation is proof that no emulsifier is used!
