Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe - How to make peanut butter at home

Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe
Mittu loves peanut butter so I started to try it at home.It is not only cheap, its more healthier than store bought ones and the best part is that you can customize it as per your liking.There are 2 varieties of peanut butter available here one is the creamy one and other is the crunchy one, the main difference is in their names itself.Mittu likes the creamy one so I usually make it that way but its upto your liking and preference.

We use peanut butter for bread,chapathi or sometimes eat as such too.
