The other day I decided to try and make some homemade peanut butter, and boy did it come out great.  The problem is, now my wife expects me to make it from now on and she has already gone through the first jar.  Guess I should have keep it to myself and not let her known what I can do. grin

if making PB keeps your wife happy, what a small price to pay!   grin

You are far better off making your own, ever read the labels on jars of peanut butter?
They add alot of garbage to it that you don't need to be eating, as long as you can make your own you should.
Its fun (except for the cleaning) and easy to do anyway, have fun! Smiley

Yeah it was a lot of fun.  For the last year we have been cutting back on the processed foods to see what kind of affect it will have on our son who has Autism.  So far, it has been a favorable and his temper tantrums have been less and less.  I just wish my wife would stay out of it, especially since she is suppose to hate it.

I just bought some raw peanuts with the plans of growing my own come spring.  I plan to save most of what I grow this next spring as seed for the following year.  I plant to grow a 10X30 area every year eventually but need to get some idea of crop size 1st.  I'll then roast my own peanuts and make peanut butter among other things.
Bought the wife a new food processor for Christmas as the old one gave out, need to put it to work.

I know that you can keep the oil mixed into the butter better if you mix it 50/50 with honey.  The honey holds the oils in suspension with it and makes a very nice breakfast or snack spread.  You can also mix fruits into the mix if desired, dried fruits like cranberries, blueberries, or raisans work well.

Vermmy, any time you can get all that processed garbage out of their diet they will do better.
That really goes for any child.
Have you tried the gluten free/casein free diet on him?
That is suppose to work miracles for some kids, behavior wise and attention wise.
It really is fun to make stuff that you use to think you could only get if you bought it, you make almond butter and all kinds of stuff.
I make homemade yogurt and the kids get to add their favorite flavors and fruits to it.
I make my own jelly and jams too and avoid all the junk thats put in it, but with the jellies you can get the flavorings from the bakery or candy supply places and make all kinds of funky flavored jelly, rootbeer, cotten candy or butter rum jelly anyone? Smiley

Rule #1:  Never show the wife, or your employer, what you are truly capable of doing, for then they expect it of you all of the time.... grin

I did some beautiful wood-working projects for us once, and Pam then began volunteering me to all of her family for projects.  I had to put a hasty stop to that.

Sorry Hank, I made it up myself and I don't like to share recipes that I make up.  Since in the next 5 yrs I plan on opening up my own all natural food line at reasonable prices.  Right now I have one more semester in Law School and in between classes I either work on the Business plan or work on my product line.

Maybe you could use a few more taste-testers.  I'm sure we could find enough volunteers right here on this site... grin

Its really easy, just grind/blend/process roasted peanuts until they are the consistency that you like, then add salt/sugar/honey/whatever to taste!

Honey + peanutbutter = good! (anything + peanutbutter = good  grin)

The trick is to roast the peanuts yourself.
