  7. Place lid back on. Continue to process while slowly drizzling in oil.
  8. Process until mixture is smooth, 1.5-2 minutes
  9. Place in airtight container and store in refrigerator up to 2 months
  10. ***but before you store it, enjoy some straight out of the processor, still warm, with some apple slices–incredible!

Notes

You can use already roasted peanuts if you wish. But freshly-roasted is wonderful!

This recipe is for a single batch which should make about 2 cups of peanut butter. If your family is like ours, and consumes mass quantities of peanut butter, I’d suggest making a double batch; it lasts two months in the fridge.
