How do we make peanut butter?
We make lovely peanut spread from groundnuts. You simply have to dry-roast the peanuts, then add a little oil to give it a smooth and creamy texture. In addition to a pinch of salt if your peanuts are unsalted. And last thing is to add honey or sugar to give it a bit sweet and balanced flavor. See that is all you have to do. It comes in two varieties that are Crunchy and Smooth. In the smooth one, you grind every bit of peanut. Whereas in crunchy one, you leave some small pieces of peanuts to have the crunch. Also it is your choice to make the spread sweet or salty.
