Awesomely Healthy Organic Black Garlic & Molasses Peanut Butter

Preheat oven to 375°F.


2 pounds          raw (blanched) Virginia Fancy shelled peanuts

2 teaspoons     fine sea salt

1/4 cup             organic blackstrap molasses- we like Plantation brand

1/4 cup             peanut oil

16                     peeled black garlic cloves 


Add a sheet of parchment paper to a large 1" lipped sheet pan.

Dump peanuts onto parchment paper and spread out to a single layer. Sprinkle with salt.

Roast in oven 10 minutes. Shake pan and roast 10 minutes more.

Remove peanuts from oven and place in a food processor equipped with a large blade. 

Drizzle warm peanuts with the molasses. Process on high for 2-1/2 minutes. Shut off motor and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Add black garlic cloves.

Start motor again and add peanut oil through the top port of the food processor in a steady stream. Continue to process 2-1/2 more minutes. 

Using a canning funnel, fill a 1 quart mason jar with the peanut butter. Allow awesome peanut butter to cool to room temperature. 

*Disclaimer: Many sources advise to refrigerate peanut butter, covered, in the refrigerator and use it within about 3 weeks. That's your call- we don't.
