Can you believe we are in our THIRD week of Kids in the Kitchen?!
This week Colin and I spent some time making peanut butter while James was at school. (It’s not nearly as hard as it sounds!)
- Dry Roasted Peanuts (You can buy the jar at the grocery store or from the bulk section, your choice!)
- Honey, optional, as much or as little as you want.
- Get out your food processor.
- Add peanuts (the more you put in, the more peanut butter you'll have).
- Push start.
- NOTE: The peanuts will go through phases. At first they'll look like crumbs, but let it keep running. Then you'll start to see the oils from the peanuts, but don't push stop yet! Once it starts to come together, stop the food processor, add some honey, then continue mixing until it looks like peanut butter.
Share photos, stories or recipes that include your #kidsinthekitchen. I would love for you to join me and my co-hosts, Paula at Frosted Fingers and Melinda at LookWhatMomFound…and Dad too, each week linking up a post, new or old, that feature the theme Kids in the Kitchen. It doesn’t matter what you are doing as long as you are doing it together and enjoying it and learning something.
- preparing healthy snacks
- having a tea party
- counting skills with m&ms
- pouring from measuring cups
- discovering a local restaurant that your kids love
- creating new family friendly recipes
