    We have tried a couple of batches of Homemade Peanut butter and I cannot get the texture smooth like store bought peanut butter. It is grainy. Does anyone have any secrets to make it smooth and creamy like store bought?

    I have made cashew butter. I put the nuts in the food processor and drizzle in a thin stream of oil only as needed to make it spreadable. I just process process process until it is smooth.

    You know I never really thought about that before. Making your own peanut butter. Now that you say something, I'll have to try it now. Just one more thing to add to my 'To do list'.

    I have only made homemade peanut butter at work with commercial equipment, and still it took a long long time. I would be afraid that it would burn out home equipment before you could get it smooth. Maybe you could soak the nuts before processing? Don't know if it would work, but might be a fun experiment. Also the peanut butter I made went rancid very quickly.
