Home-made Peanut Butter


Making peanut butter at home is really the easiest thing to do. Plus you can avoid all the preservatives and whatever else they add into the store bought ones. The other advantage of making it at home is the different flavours we can experiment with. Make it sweet by adding some sugar or make it spicy by adding cayenne pepper and red chilli flakes or anything else in between.
