This Homemade Peanut Butter is easily the cheapest and simplest thing you will ever make in you entire life! It’s made with just 1 ingredient – I’m sure you can work out what that is! Just thrown into a blender for a few minutes and that’s all ready for you to eat with everything. I love making my own nut butter as I can choose what goes in it and what stays out of it. One of my faves is adding chocolate or cinnamon, so so good.
I had so many peanuts to use up today at home. Why did I end up with so many unintentionally? It all started at work when….
Today I overheard the word ‘penis’ bellowing prominently from the mouth of the dean of my university as I exited the classroom shortly after teaching my first lecture of the morning. At first I was like, wtf, with a mild fear of what I might stumble across when I walked into his office- luckily he and my fellow work mates had a bag containing at least 10kg of freshly roasted monkey nuts (fresh out of their microwave) presented to them on the polished mahogany table top.
My dean, whose mother tongue is Mandarin, was unsure of the English translation of this crunchy, commonly consumed legume, so my Chinese colleagues took it upon themselves to teach him the word ‘peanuts’. It just happened to be that they were unable to pronounce the ‘t’ clearly enough for the human ear to detect, and so ‘peanuts’ just became ‘penis’.
After it was clear that I was safely concealed from the depths of what lied beneath my dean’s underwear, I confidently entered the office and was immediately given a 1 kilogram portion of peanuts to take back home at my disposal. And so came the peanut butter.
