Do you love peanut butter as much as I do? Then you probably hate how the jars just add up. Let me show you how to make your own peanut butter zero waste style using bulk peanuts and never buy another jar of peanut butter again.
Did you know homemade peanut butter is one of the easiest foods you can make?
Not only is it simple and fast but it’s a popular homemade snack for the zero waste community because peanuts are easily found in bulk bins all across the country.
In my local stores, you can choose between several varieties of peanuts like roasted, salted, unsalted, unroasted, which makes your homemade peanut butter completely customizable. And think of all the jars you’ll be avoiding!
All you need is a food processor and peanuts. You can choose to add salt or other flavors like cinnamon, honey, or whatever else you can think of.
Here’s how to make homemade zero waste peanut butter.
Buy peanuts in bulk from the grocery store. I buy unsalted roasted peanuts so I can control the sodium.
Pour about 4 cups of peanuts in your food processor and turn it on. If you’re adding in honey or spices add them now.
Let the food processor run until the peanut butter reaches your desired consistency. We like really smooth peanut butter so I let the food processor run for a while.
When it’s at the consistency you like, find a jar to store the peanut butter and, a silicone spatula a funnel if you have one.
Pour the peanut butter in the jar and scrape down the sides of the food processor bowl to get all the goodness.
Store the peanut butter in the pantry or refrigerator.
Add bulk peanuts to your grocery list.
