Nothing too crazy here. I mean it's peanut butter. How crazy do you want it??? You could even skip the honey, but it's honey.... Does anyone not like honey? That would be crazy.
Spread the peanuts over a cookie sheet or pizza pan of some sort. Throw them...no don't throw them... Gently set them in the oven at 350 degrees for 20-30 min.
I'm using a nut grinder here so I can pretend to be all vintage and cool. A food processor or blender will work just fine, but all your modern conveniences are ruining the experience of manual labor
After a bit of grinding you'll start to get a nice paste forming. Keep going to get the consistency you like. I like it chunky, some like it creamy . Add some peanut oil as you go to keep it smooth
Once you get it how you like it and you like it how you got it you can throw the butter into a mixing bowl. Add the honey to taste and mix either with a mixer or by hand if you're a champ like that.
When you get it to the smoothness you want throw it in a jar and enjoy. I recommend immediately making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Or...peanut butter and toast. OMG so many possibilities!
