Cajun peanut butter

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Shelled raw peanuts
2 tablespoons Brown sugar
½ teaspoon Black pepper
¼ teaspoon Cayenne pepper
¼ teaspoon Paprika

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Place the peanuts in a large bowl. Sprinkle with the remaining ingredients, mixing well. Lay the seasoned peanuts in a single layer on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper and cook in the preheated oven until the brown sugar on the peanuts forms little crystals, about 15 min. Watch carefully to make sure the peanuts don't burn. Remove the peanuts form the oven, separate and cool.

Puree the cooled peanuts to desired consistency in a food processor, about 1 min for smooth peanut butter, less for chunky. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Remember, since this contains no preservatives, it has a very short shelf life - about 2 weeks, even when refrigerated.
