Making peanut butter at home is super simple. This just three-ingredient recipe is super quick if you have shelled and toasted peanuts in hand.
To make peanut butter at home just grind it with salt and oil. My younger boy likes it a lot. I, knowing the high protein content of peanut butter love to give it to him on paratha, toast, and roti.
My first batch of Peanut Butter came as I had a pack of fried salted peanuts that no one wanted to eat. I just had to grind them and add sugar and it was ready. And the taste was really good. The second also came like that too.

How to store Homemade Peanut Butter?
- Store homemade nut butter in a clean jar with a tightly covered lid as exposure to oxygen can make it rancid. Always use a clean spoon for serving.
- Keep all nut butter in the fridge, and they are good for more than a month. If you like soft butter, you can store it on the countertop too for more than a week. If you want to store it for longer, you can keep it in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- You can even make a large batch and store it in the freezer. Just take out a small portion and store it in a separate jar in the fridge.
- If oil separates give your butter a whisk.
- Discard peanut butter if the solid part liquefies or smells or taste becomes sour.
