Interested in making a close version of the famous Spicy Haitian Peanut Butter? The recipe below will show you how easy it is. Only three ingredients are needed, roasted peanuts, peanut oil, and hot pepper
If you are wondering why hot pepper, it is because we, Haitians love hot peppers. I believe a good hot pepper sauce like Noubess hot and spicy sauces, for example, makes everything taste better. So why not add hot pepper to peanut butter? Instead of roasting peanuts, buy already roasted peanuts. It may be a bit pricey, but I find store-bought roasted peanut easier to use.
When adding hot pepper, I usually add half of a small scotch or habanero pepper without seeds. Combine all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. If you are worried about ways of storing the peanut butter, the refrigerator is the best way to store it.
It may harden, but don’t worry. Just let it out at room temperature for a few minutes. Don’t forget this is an all-natural recipe so make sure you store it well and enjoy it for about 2 months.
