Can it: Thai Peanut Butter

Don’t worry, you’re not losing your mind, you read that title correctly. But just in case you’re second-guessing yourself I’ll say it again, Thai peanut butter.

If you’ve been to a Thai restaurant this shouldn’t be a huge shock. Peanut sauce is common in those eatateriums. I just turned what is usually a sauce into a butter, ready to spread on bread or use on chicken.


  • 8 oz peanuts
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 1 T honey
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 T red curry paste
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper
  1. Put peanuts in food processor and process for about a minute
  2. Put the rest of the ingredients in the food processor blender and process for 2 minutes
  3. Enjoy!
It really is that easy. Put your finished product in a jar, put a lid on it and it’ll keep for months in a cabinet, though I doubt it will be around that long. I made an open-faced sandwich with the spread the other day on rye bread. I added some garden onions and fresh basil to finish it off. It was pretty fantastic. I’m contemplating making a basil jelly to make a unique and, some might say, strange peanut butter and jelly.

    I LOVED the combo peanut butter you made. This one sounds pretty fantastic as well. Are we thinking distributorship?

    You put the peanuts into the food processor. Then the rest of the ingredients into a blender. Do you ever put them together?

      Yes. Sorry, for the typo. Everything gets mixed in the same food processor, no blender needed. Thanks for pointing that out, Alan.

    This is a great idea. I am going to make this for a camping trip and put it on rice noodles. Easy road food! thank you.
