With the cost of peanut butter on the rise (one jar is over $4 in some places) the days of eating this stuff out of the jar is sadly behind us. However, just because the store bought stuff is out of budget doesn't mean you still can't enjoy your favorite PB & J or spoonful of creamy peanut butter.

This recipe for homemade peanut butter is not only a money saver, it's absolutely delicious! After just one bite of this creamy, homemade stuff, you won't miss the junk in a jar one bit! Why pay an arm and a leg for the creamy peanut butter you love when you can easily, and cheaply, just make it at home? In addition, this can be stored up to 2 months in an air tight container so make a few batches to have on hand!
