DIRECTIONS

  • Put the peanuts in the food processor and grind till they are fine and they start to back down into the bowl.
  • Add the oil and process again till very well blended; it will be quite soft at this point.
  • Lift cover and add the honey; process--after you add this it will tighten up and become more solid.
  • NOTE: At this point the texture should be fairly soft as it sets some in the refrigerator, but if it is too hard add a tad more oil, but not too much.
  • Put into a container and refrigerate.
