My sister-in-law is an amazing cook. When my niece was young, my sister-in-law made all her baby food. She had one of those Ninja food processors that she would use for this.
Yesterday she made homemade peanut butter. Let me tell you, I love me some peanut butter. I have a total weakness it. I love it on toast, with banana, as a dip for apples, on crackers, and especially with chocolate.
I’ve tried a few different types of peanut butter including natural organic pb. I’ve never noticed much difference in taste between brands although I am aware of some texture differences. However, I’ve never tried homemade peanut butter before today.
I’m spending several days babysitting my niece. Today I had to take a taste of the nutty spread before I went home for the day. My sister-in-law said she used peanuts, oil, and honey to create it. From the first look, I noticed a difference. The homemade pb was lighter in color than the stuff I see on supermarket shelves. Additionally, it looked less oily. There was definite texture — almost grainy-like — as opposed to the commercial brands.
As for the flavor, it was less sweet than commercial brands. I tasted more of a balance between salty and sweet. It was yummy.
