HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER

Peanut butter or peanut paste is a food paste or spread made from ground, dry-roasted peanuts.
It is a nutrient-rich food containing high levels of protein, several vitamins, and dietary minerals, typically served as a spread on bread, toast, or crackers, and used to make sandwiches. It is also used in breakfast dishes and desserts, such as peanut-flavored granola, smoothies, crepes, cookies, brownies, or croissants.

Originating in Mexico, peanut butter dates back to 1884 when it was patented by a pharmacist from the city of Bedford (Quebec). In the United States and Canada, peanut butter is a staple food. According to statistics, 89% of American and Canadian households consume it for its nutritional value and low cost. It remains very little consumed in Europe.
