  • baking tray
  • large spoon
  • food processor or power blender
  • preserve jar & lid


  • 500 g Raw shelled peanuts I used red skin peanuts


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC.
  • Spread the peanuts out in a single layer on a baking tray and roast for 15 minutes.
  • Taste a peanut (carefully it will be hot) and if it doesn't taste like a roasted peanut carry on roasting for a little longer and taste again.
  • Once the peanuts are ready, allow them to cool.
  • Pop the peanuts into a food processor and blend until the peanut fragments are the size you'd like in your peanut butter.
  • Remove a few tablespoons (amount depends on how much crunch you want in your peanut butter) and set aside.
  • Continue blending the peanuts, stopping periodically to scrape down the sides (patience needed unless you have a high powered blender) until you achieve the consistency of peanut butter (having a little taste will confirm this too).
  • Finally fold in the peanuts fragments and place in a 500 ml sterilised jar.
  • Store in a cool dark place.


Before you start:
Sterilise your jar/s by washing in hot soapy water (or take straight from dishwasher), fill with boiling water, empty and then place in oven for 20 minutes at 140°C where you leave until the peanut butter is ready. Washed lids should be sterilised with boiling water and then left to drain (if they don’t dry in time I pop them in the oven once the jar/s have finished “cooking” and just run the fan to dry them off for a few minutes).
