Yes, I’m talking about homemade Peanut Butter. And remember how Brad Pitt licked-to-clean his spoonful of peanut butter from the movie “Meet Joe Black”? Oh, he is very welcome to try this one. I wonder if his lovely other-half A. Jolie would love making her own. Kitchen is an adventure, you know.

Well, well. Today is year 2014. Fifteen years ago the scenery of sidewalk vendors (in my hometown at Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines) frying peanuts on the street in giant heavy pots and turning them to peanut butter was so fun to watch. I would look at them and transport to my mind how they made those yummy peanut butters right there, fresh and very aromatic. It took me 15 years to make my own. Even if this is my first time to make my own peanut putter, I was so happy it turned out to be a success. I love how my homemade peanut butter turned out, and now I am sharing this to you.


1⁄2 lb
peanut seeds, peeled or unpeeled
1 c
cooking oil
1 T
dark, raw honey (or granulated sugar)
1⁄2 t
1 T
olive oil, optional


Heat a cup of cooking oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add in peanuts and stir constantly until lightly browned …PIC…

Spoon out cooked peanuts from oil and set aside, sprinkled with salt (mix well).

Let cool.

Set up your food processor. You must use/install the blade spinner in the middle.

Add in cooled peanuts, honey and a tablespoon of olive oil. Note: instead of using olive oil, you may just use the oil used to cook your peanuts. Add more oil if you want your peanut butter more runny, less if you want it more compact.

Run the food processor until peanut mixture has reached to your desired texture of the peanut butter. The longer it is set in food processor, the smoother it is.

Transfer to an airtight container. I store mine in the refrigerator and use within 1 month.

Don’t you know that peanut butter in Asia is also a popular condiment? Below I am showing off my pork caldereta, a popular Philippine dish that can be cooked with peanut butter. You may try to click the image for the recipe.

Now back to Brad Pitt who made peanut butter a hit...
