This classic sandwich spread contains just one ingredient--peanuts!
- 3 cups (420 g) unsalted roasted peanuts
- Pour nuts into the Vitamix container and secure lid.
- Select Variable 1.
- Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High, using the tamper to push the ingredients into the blades.
- In 1 minute, you will hear a high pitched chugging sound. Once the butter begins to flow freely through the blades, the motor sound will change from a high pitch to a low laboring sound. Stop machine.
- Store in an airtight container. It can also be frozen for longer storage.
CAUTION: Over processing will cause overheating to your machine. Do not process for more than 1 minute after mixture starts circulating freely. For recipe variation, see Cashew Nut Butter and Almond Butter recipes.
I tried to make peanut butter one time only. I used honey roasted peanuts. It broke my machine. I got it replaced but now I'm scared to do anything with it in fear it will break again. What did I do wrong?
It takes far more than 1 minute. Using plunger it sounds like I'm burning up my motor. I make the batches in small portions but still that burning sound. Its smooth when I put in container but after day or so its crumbly, not smooth for toast. Wrong?
the peanuts I have are salted, can I just wash them and use them to make the peanut butter?
Can you use the standard blade it came with or do you need a special blade to blend the nuts? I'm afraid it won't work or they will be too hard and break the machine
Can I make peanut butter with the s30 model? Thanks
JimN, I have the same problem. I was wondering if you could add honey or agave nectar instead of oil?
I have made peanut butter a couple of times, it always tastes great but it's very powdery and not spreadable. I tried adding a little oil to smooth it out to no avail. What am I doing wrong?
How long does the peanut butter last and does it need refrigeration?
