Homemade Peanut Butter

Tuesday, 25 July 2017




Some articles claim that store bought peanut butter contain trans-fat.  I am not sure how true that is. I also found this article from National Peanut Board that you may find interesting.

Whatever is it, homemade peanut is still the safest.

500g raw peanuts
1 tsp salt
