Homemade Peanut Butter

Makes about ¾ cup.
While nuts and seeds are digestible raw, a peanut is a legume and needs cooking to enhance flavour and digestability
For a flavor boost, and to increase digestibility, add ¼ teaspoon cinnamon to your peanut butter.
1 cup roasted  peanuts
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon salad/peanut oil
Place the peanuts and salt in a food processor/blender process until the nuts are finely ground.
Add the oil and continue processing until the peanut butter reaches desired degree of smoothness.
Add more oil if necessary to get asmooth spread.
For chunky peanut butter, stir in 1/4 cup roasted, chopped peanuts.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Use as sanwich spread,in cookies or bars
