Easy Homemade Peanut Butter

October 2, 2014 duchessoffork 0

I’m not sure why I waited so long to make my own peanut butter. I’m fairly certain that our family keeps the peanut farmers of America in business. We eat more peanut butter than anyone I’ve ever seen. We put it on waffles, pancakes, crackers, spoons, finger …
