Kitchen Staples You Can Make Yourself

How to make it:
1. Put the peanuts, honey and salt into a food processor and process for 2 minutes.
2. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and continue processing while slowly adding the oil of your choice (peanut oil or vegetable oil works best).
3. Process until smooth, about 2 minutes. Taste your peanut butter and add a little more salt or honey if desired. Scoop out the homemade goodness and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
