Homemade Peanut Butter

Time Needed: 5 minutes
Level of difficulty: easy
Materials needed: 1 cup roasted and shelled peanuts, 1 1/2 teaspoon peanut oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt (only if using unsalted peanuts)
Directions: Put it all in a blender and blend until it's smooth as a baby's bottom. Want chunky peanut butter? Reserve 1/4 cup peanuts from the initial blend and put them in at the end just long enough to add some chunks. Just so you know, because this is homemade, the texture will be slightly grainy. I don't want you to get done and think you failed because of that!

Note: Don't have peanut oil and don't want to go buy any? You can use vegetable oil as a suitable substitute. Don't want to use oil at all? I've never tried it, but rumor is if you still blend the crap out of those peanuts, butter ye shall have.
