What are groundnuts?

Groundnut is rich in oil and protein and has a high-energy value.

Groundnut provides high-quality cooking oil and is an important source of protein for both human and animal diets.

Known as a complete food, groundnuts contain on average 63% carbohydrate, 19% protein, and 6.5% fat, making it a very important source of dietary protein. The color of the seeds varies from black, dark brown, red, white, cream or a combination of these colors. Groundnuts are among the most important crops for small farmers in Africa, providing both food and income for households.

There are so many great health benefits from groundnuts. First, they have lots of fiber and are very filling.

How to Make Homemade Peanut Butter

Prep time: 10 min Cook time: 30 min Total time: 40 min

Did you know that in the United States peanut butter by Law must contain at least 90% peanut in natural peanut butter the remaining weight is composed of peanut oil and salt and added sugar stabilizers and various additives to enhance shelf life and creaminess?

Well homemade peanut butter is much more natural and healthier to make.

Place 2 cups of shelled and skinned roasted peanuts and 1/2 teaspoons of honey 1 teaspoon of kosher salt. Clamp-on the lid processing for one minute, now that is not going to become completely smooth but clumpy. now add in 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of peanut oil and mix for about 1 and 1/2 to 2 minutes or until it is nice and smooth. Since your homemade peanut butter does not contain any preservatives you want to keep your a homemade peanut butter in the refrigerator slightly sealed.

While you already know that you can eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon or pair it with jelly on bread for a classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, the options don’t stop there. Making peanut butter smoothies takes about 5 minutes to make just add ripe bananas blended together with creamy peanut butter to form this tasty mixture. Also, add peanut butter with tomato sauce and cinnamon and serve over chicken for the perfect tomato sauce.

Try peanut butter coconut sauce by adding cilantro, jalapenos and lime juice mixed with smooth peanut butter and coconut milk this recipe will become a family favorite. Do not let that jar of peanut butter fit in your cabinet or only come out to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches think outside the box by using peanut butter on more than just bread.

In Africa using peanut butter as the main ingredient in soups and stews has been a long traditional history in African cooking. Peanuts are a thickener, it is great for use in soups, and stews of all types instead of using flour or cornstarch try using peanut butter in your favorite soup or stew recipe the next time you make your favorite dish. If you are concerned about the taste of peanuts overpowering your dish, do not worry as peanuts absorb the flavor of ingredients it is surrounded by.
