Homemade Peanut Butter

Ingredients:
1 cup roasted, unsalted, shelled peanuts
1 1/2 to 3 tablespoons peanut or safflower oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Honey to taste, optional

Directions:
Blend peanuts in food processor or blender adding just enough oil to make it smooth. You can use salted peanuts and omit the salt, or omit the salt entirely with unsalted peanuts. Add honey to taste, if desired.

If you want chunky peanut butter, add chopped peanuts after you have made the smooth version.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use within two weeks.

Give the family a break from salt and syrup for awhile;
it really helps at preserving the system. I don’t like knowing
that others has salt shrunken arteries, pinched veins or scalded
organs. Search often for recipes like this.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
