Homemade PEanut butter
I have been known to make my own nut butters b/c I am a freak about where my food comes from and the less processed the better. I can't believe more people dont do it. I buy raw nuts- roast them for 20 min in the oven at 350. ANd thrown them into the food processor until creamy... Peanut, Almond, Cashew, Macadamia, Walnut... endless possibilities.
I now add that I make my own PB and now I hear there was an outbreak of samonella in PB. 474 people as of Friday Jan 16 in 43 states (PA and NJ included) were sickened- which makes me sickened! King Nut recalled 1000 cases of PB. This is 2 years after Con Agra recalled its Peter Pan brand peanut butter, which had been linked to at least 625 salmonella cases in 47 states.
