First things first:
Buy yourself a quality hand mill. A good hand mill is an investment and in the end will save you money, provide you with better tasting ingredients, and give you assurance in troubled times. We suggest a hand mill with Stainless Steel Burrs as well as Stone Milling Heads.
When making nut butters you will have fantastic results if you use fresh ingredients.
Start with these ingredients to make 3 cups of peanut butter with this homemade peanut butter recipe:
- 4 cups of fresh shelled roasted peanuts
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup of canola oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
Hand mills with high quality stainless steel burrs, make excellent nut butters, however, the nuts must be FRESH. If even slightly stale, the nuts will grind into more of a flour than a butter. This is a good way of telling if the nuts you have purchased are fresh. If the nuts you grind do not produce a smooth, consistent butter, then purchase fresher nuts.
Set your stainless steel burrs to a fine setting by adjusting the milling heads so that they are close, but not so tight that it is hard to turn the mill. When milling nuts you should have a smooth paste coming from the mill. Once you finish the grinding simply add salt, sugar, and canola oil to get the desired taste and consistency. Stir to peanut butter consistency and it will keep in the fridge for up to 2 months
Clean up, with a good quality hand mill, is easy. Good hand mills are completely washable and the heads are easily removed for quick clean up in your kitchen sink. A little warm water and a few drops of dish soap and your done.
Don't forget in a good hand mill with stainless steel burrs you can make many kinds of nut butters, ranging from Almond and Cashew butter to Sesame butter. Let your imagination run wild and enjoy this homemade peanut butter recipe.
