  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Tip the peanuts onto a large baking tray, place in the oven and roast for 10 mins, stirring now and then to ensure they don’t catch at the edges. When golden brown, remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.

  2. Tip the nuts into a food processor, and add the salt. Blend for 4-5 mins, until you’re left with a smooth nut butter, if you want to loosen the consistency, add a drizzle of oil and blend again.

How do you store the peanut butter? And how long can it be stored for?

Spoon the peanut butter into a clean jar or plastic food storage container. Attach the lid tightly. Store the peanut butter in the refrigerator for two to four weeks. Make only the amount of peanut butter that you can reasonably use during this time period. Freeze the peanut butter in a freezer-safe storage container for six months or longer. Thaw the peanut butter completely in the refrigerator before use. Stir the peanut butter thoroughly before each use. The peanuts and oil tend to separate during both freezing and refrigerating.
