Easy Breezy Homemade Peanut Butter

3 lbs. shelled roasted peanuts ( no salt )             

In a large 12 cup food processor place all the peanuts. Use the chopping, mixing bottom blade. Run processor until you have peanut butter.This should take about 10 minutes. Run on high speed for 3 minutes then pulse for about 1 minutes. Turn on to high speed & run for about another 3 minutes. Pulse again for 1 minutes & then finish butter on medium speed. Stop when you have the chunky or stop when it is smooth. Mine is slightly chunky.  Place butter in a large container & keep refrigerated. This is a HEALTHY choice over store brand butters & uses no salt, sugars or oils other than the natural oils in the peanuts. This peanut butter is terrific for using in main dishes like African  Peanut Stew or Asian Peanut Butter Chicken. I will Blog those recipes at a later date. I eat this practically everyday so I make the big batch. If you want smaller amounts just use fewer peanuts. This butter keeps it's consistency & usually does not need stirred & is spreadable right from the frig !
