Homemade peanut butter #5

We picked up a bag of cheap peanuts the other day and decided to try our hand at making peanut butter.

Homemade peanut butter:
you will need
1 cup of shelled peanuts
1 tsp of peanut oil (or olive oil)
1/2 tsp salt

First, shell the peanuts, Ebi-kun couldn't break the shell himself so I broke, he picked out the peanuts.
Put the peanuts on a baking tray and bake at 180 deg C for about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Remove the red skin from the peanuts, it comes off easily once the have been baked.

Put everything in a blender and whizz until it becomes creamy, it took quite a while for us.
spread on freshly baked bread and enjoy.
Testers comments: it was fun but took a long time, it doesn't taste like out usual (store bought) peanut butter.

Assistants Comments: It was easier than I thought it was going to be, luckily we had the distraction of dinner in the middle so the peanuts could cool down, we actually ate the peanut butter the next day. It may separate as it stands, just give it a stir before using.
