Never Buy Peanut Butter or Roasted Nuts Again!
Sometimes, there are things you learn in the homesteading, preparedness, and survival worlds that make you honestly take a moment and ask yourself, “Why doesn’t everyone do this!?” or, “Why haven’t I learned this sooner?” Roasting nuts and making peanut butter (or almond butter, or walnut butter) definitely falls into that category.
Not only for the skill and better tasting food, making your own peanut butter and roasting almonds, walnuts, and pistachios is incredibly satisfying. When you make your own, you are taking out all the added preservatives, sugar, and salt and instead regaining control over your food and how it is processed. When it is this easy to make your own, why not try it? In some cases, you can even find pre-shelled peanuts (and others) on deep discounts, especially during harvest time so it ends up being less expensive (and better for you) than the store-bought counter part.
From a preparedness standpoint, being able to make your own can make a big difference as roasting is a way to preserve and make them last longer. With all the protein that various edible nuts provide, these are a sort of super food that can really make the difference if the SHTF!
