peanut butter


I love, love peanut butter!
but over here it is an almost luxury item and expensive so I make my own. it is very simple and easy and it comes to about 1/4 of the price I would normally pay for a store bought. I like it plain with nothing sweet added, I find it it not necessary and make it like this ...

place the shelled plain roasted peanuts in a heavy duty blender (I use one like this, for small batches it is perfect and easy to clean) and a pinch of sea salt. blend until smooth to your taste. if necessary add a little bit of peanut oil and blend again. for a crunchy version just mix some more peanuts that have been broken into pieces previously. refrigerate and enjoy!

happy tuesday! :) .p

*manteiga de amendoim*

colocar os amendoins torrados e descascados no "1,2,3" (ou semelhante!) com uma pitada de sal marinho (há quem goste de misturar açúcar ou mel, como as comercialmente disponíveis mas eu não acho necessário) e triturar até obter a consistência desejada. se necessário juntar um pouco de óleo de amendoim e misturar novamente. para manteiga de amendoim crocante misturar uns amendoins previamente partidos. refrigerar ... é óptimo em torradas! ; )

Descubro mais uma coisa em comum entre nós, manteiga da amendoim... é um dos elementos base da minha alimentação, sem exageros :-) Também tenho um post no blog em que refiro esta delícia, "Do bom e do bonito"!

I am a crazy peanut lover, but I can't for the life of me like peanut butter and it truly depresses me! I have to admit, it never even occurred to me to try and make it myself, so that's what I'm gonna do some time soon and maybe I'll like a homemade version. Thank you very much for sharing!

Homemade is SO much better. We're all peanut butter crazy here...even Turbo!
