Now the Recipe of Salty N Spicy Peanut Butter:
Select some good peanuts:
- While buying peanuts for peanut butter, you should choose those shelled peanuts.
- However, I used some raw peanuts with skins, then roasted them and removed the skin.
- To avoid all these work, just buy the roasted and shelled peanuts.
- If you are using raw peanuts, then roast them in the oven first.
- Roast at 250 F and for 10 minutes.
Remember that the peanuts shouldn’t turn very dark and brown.
- Check this image with three varieties of peanuts after roasting.
- While the nearly raw ones look pinkish, the perfectly roasted ones look reddish and the over-roasted one look red-brownish.
- Your aim is to get more reddish looking peanuts after roasting.
- Well roasted peanuts are even easier to handle while husking.
- Place the roasted peanuts in a cloth and rub them between your palms.
- Now use a colander or a spatula with big holes to remove the shelled peanuts easily.
- Shake off the lose skins and place the shelled and roasted peanuts in another tray.
- If using roasted and shelled peanuts, start with this step.
- In a food processor, eight ounce of shelled peanuts.
- Process at a medium speed until they become coarse and grainy.
- Stir and scrape from the edges and process again.
- The mixture will turn doughy first, and then it will turn creamy and smooth.
- It will take only 5-7 minutes to become creamy unlike the processing time of almond butter.
- Now add Himalayan pink salt, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin powder and garlic powder.
- Process again so that the spice is well combined with the peanut butter.
- Store in an air-tight container for months, preferably in a refrigerator.
