Chunky Homemade Peanut Butter

Yield: About one jar of chunky peanut butter


4 cups (1 lb.) roasted, unsalted peanuts - divided
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 tsp. salt
1-2 Tbsp. canola or peanut oil (Optional - it makes the peanut butter much easier to spread after it has been refrigerated)


1. Blend 3 cups of the peanuts in a food processor for up to 10 minutes, until the peanut butter is very creamy and well-blended.
2. Roughly chop the remaining one cup of peanuts.
3. Mix in the one cup of roughly chopped peanuts, oil, honey, and salt. Adjust to taste.


Note: If you prefer creamy peanut butter you can process all four cups of the peanuts in the food processor. The amount of honey are salt are adjustable, so feel free to add more or less to change the sweetness or saltiness of the peanut butter.
