Finding myself temporarily short on both food and funds, I decided to see if I could make my own peanut butter. Armed with only a mortar and pestle, I shelled a bunch of peanuts and proceeded to crush them by hand. Once I got every peanut half crushed at least once, I added a little peanut oil to help smooth it out. I then added a touch of agave syrup to make it a little sweeter. This was then put on Nature Bake’s Stoneground Whole Wheat bread with organic strawberry jam. It took about a half-hour to make this little bit of peanut butter. A food processor would have been a huge help in this situation. I think it was worth it though, since Mary likes the result.!
