Homemade Peanut Butter

Grandmother called with an emergency freezer situation. Seems the freezer went out and she was loosing lots of food. So we brought home the bucket of peanuts. We thought it would be fun to make homemade peanut butter. So we did our research and learned that first we had to roast our nuts, skin them, and then chop them in the BOSCH blender. We added a little salt and some honey to the mixture. It turned out really good. And it was all natural and healthy for us.

Our honey from Cullman. Abigail in her new favorite giraffe dress. I think they are really leopard spots, but I am not telling her yet!

And of course, when you are making peanut butter you have to learn about peanuts. So we discussed George Washington Carver, peanuts, and peanut uses. The kids then drew pictures about what they learned, and David wrote a paper about it. It was a fun 2 days studying peanuts!

The moral of the story is God is good! This one little bucket of peanuts will provide my children
with plenty of yummy protein. We were able to get 4 jelly jars full of peanut butter saved for a rainy day. And God is so good about letting others share their blessings with us. Makes me feel all warm inside.
