The things you do for love.
I love peanut butter but I really don't like peanuts. I had no idea that 1 ounce of peanut butter has 8
grams of protein. I'm monitoring protein, not for myself but for my mom.
I do a lot of things for her these days and on Day 185 I made peanut butter.
This wasn't a complex thing but I really wanted to see how difficult it was and if I purchased organic nuts, could I make organic peanut butter on my own. This was successful and not only did it turn out delicious it was as creamy as butter.
If the world was a perfect place and my mother had the strength, this would have been the crunchiest peanut butter ever made in any home. I couldn't make that for my first batch but I plan to in the future. My mother deserves every crunchy nutty morsel.
If you're interested in making your own I just filled up the food processor with nuts and let it go. I'd say it took about 3 minutes. The best part of this experience is that my peanut butter is made from one ingredient... peanuts.
Day 185 was smooth and nutty.
