We Love Our Peanut Butter Maker!
When it comes to the nuts, the advice in the booklet is to chop them as small as possible. We ended up quickly blitzing them in the food processor before adding them into the Peanut Maker. Can you see how small the pieces are in the photo? That’s perfect for a medium crunch!
We then added sunflower oil to the ‘oil dispenser’ and slowly squeezed it into the machine as the nuts were processed into butter. This aspect requires trial and error, but if it comes out al ittle too ‘wet’ then you can always mix it together at the end to even it out.
As you can see, the butter comes out and lands in a pot which you can either store it in or clean out and use again for different nuts…
If you’ve watched the video you can see the genuine reactions from George and Molly; they loved their first attempt at peanut butter!
Having used this handy gadget I do have a few tips to share before you even get yours out of the box…
Peanut Butter Maker: Top Tips!
- Shell as many nuts as you can (the machine will not produce tasty nut butter if you don’t shell your nuts!), we used a large bag of peanuts for our first attempt and it produced about a cup full of butter.
- The amount of oil needed is really learnt through trial and error, although there are some handy recipes in the booklet.
- Make sure it is fully prepared before switching on, and that there are no little hands inside the machine.
- Don’t forget to spin the ‘nut guide’ to make sure all the nuts go into the hole to create tasty butter.
- Add any extras after the nut butter is made. (Chilli, spices, sugar etc should be mixed in after the nut butter has been made!).
- Fresh nut butter should be refrigerated!
- Enjoy it! Get the kids involved (and the big kids too!) and just have fun!
Everyone loves this new gadget, I can see it getting a lot of use in our kitchen. I love how everyone can get really hands on with it, but also how it shows the children the process of making peanut butter in your home.
I think this would be an awesome gift, or just a treat for all the family!
