Introduction: How to Make Organic Peanut Butter
In this instructable I will show you how you can make the easiest organic peanut butter. This peanut butter is 100% organic, non-gmo, no additives, preservable and most important of all the best peanut butter you have ever tasted.
The first time I made home made peanut butter was about two years ago. When I started the actually look at the labels of the food that I bought, I was kind of shocked that it contained 10 grams of sugar per 100 grams and that it contained additional salt. Why is it necessary to use added sugar and salt when peanuts already have natural sugar and salt?
So, how does it work? Buy a bag of roasted in-shell peanuts and peel/de skin the peanuts. Remove the shell and reddish skin as much as possible. If you leave to much skin in, you are going to taste it. It takes some time to peel a whole bag, but let your partner or children help you out (it's fun to do it together). Keep the skinned peanuts in a bowl.
When all of the skin is off, you can put the peanuts in a food processor. Let it blend on the highest speed. After 30 seconds you have the structure from which you can make peanut sauce (or satay/saté sauce as we say here in the Netherlands). Let it run continuously for 6 minutes the peanuts will turn into a paste. After about 8 minutes you get a thick peanut butter. If you like the structure you can take it out at that point. I let it run for another 2 minutes and after 10 minutes you have a super creamy peanut butter.
I store the peanut butter in an old peanut butter jar. The good thing is that after I made a lot of jars of peanut butter, not one of them has gone dry. The peanut butter stays nice and spreadable.

Step 4: Notes
Keep the peanut butter in an old peanut butter jar and store it in a dark cupboard (not in the refrigerator). It will stay preservable for months. I have never thrown away any of my home made peanut butter. Just make sure you close the lid tight.
You can eat this peanut butter with for example some delicious vegan banana peanut butter pancakes (see my previous instructable) or on a sandwich with jelly. You can add some sambal to the peanut butter to make Faja Lobi, the Surinam hot peanut butter.
