You'd be nuts to pass this one up.
I'm thinking about making my own nut butter.
Put your nuts in a blender.
Getting this at $2.75 makes it not worth making your own
But at least I know where my nuts are from.
Ouch - That will hurt!
Serious question about making your own.. What sort of blender do I use? Is it just one of the milkshake type like this or is it meant to be a food processor like this? I probably go through 1 of these jars in 1.5-2 weeks on average I'd guess and it may be cheaper instead of always waiting for it to be on special
Have you tried googling "making nut butter"? One way is to use a high-powered blender but it won't last long in storage. The other way is to use an appropriate juicer.
I use a vitamix clone which retail at kogan (vitablast) for 89 on sale but got the recalled ones for 35 on ebay and then bought a set of blades for 10 dollars on ebay. Works just like a vitamix but costs 10 times less and makes the smoothest sauces and nut butters.
Roast 450 grams (minimum required to blend in blender) of nuts first at 160 degrees fan forced for 12-16 minutes in one layer until you have a nice roasted smell and a bit of a colour change to golden brown, this also gets rid of the anti nutrients.
once it has cooled pulse blend using the tamper for 2 minutes then let cool before pulsing again. You need to do this a few times then at the end when you have the right smoothness you can add a sweetener and a very small pinch of salt and the chia seeds or whatever. The reason for cooling it down is to get the shiny smooth texture. By the final blend you shoulkd be able to blend without the tamper for a minute. Doing it in one go without the cooling stage will separate the oils and you will get a film of oil on the top when storing. This butter will last in the fridge using an air tight mason jar for a few weeks if you just spread and put straight baack into the fridge. If you dont refrigerate then maybe 10 days before quality declines.
This method results in the snooothest and shiniest butter without any additional oils especially for almondnut butter at a cost of about just over 4 dollars for a 500 gram jar of chia almond butter.
However this deal is great so I will also get a few.
Awesome been waiting for a sale for these. One of the best tasting peanut butters out there!
Ohhh then I must try! I've just been eating the normal Bega smooth peanut butter
Edit: Just purchased it today, smooth version. To be honest, IMO: too watery, just tilting the jar makes the peanut butter slide around the jar, not thick, not smooth at all, it has grains in it (in-which I don't like crunchy/grainy peanut butter, I like smooth) and it's tasteless. I'll just stick to the Bega version. But that's just me.
Decent peanut butter - pro tip: keep these upside down so the oil doesnt just lie at the bottom. Plastic containers too, so need to be careful with knives as they pierce the container.
Last time I checked though, these were made in New Zealand from Chinese peanuts. Not sure if thats the case now.
I just had a look at their site and they claim the only use Australian peanuts. Should they be in short supply they'll source them from Argentina.
source them from Argentina
source them from Argentina
Are you saying them Latinos are loco, esé?

@cittris: ah that's great! I'm guessing the picture on the Woolworths site is out of date.
They are… from mother earth, where humans live…. No need to find any info
So I contacted Mother Earth to confirm:
Thank you for your enquiry.
As per our label, Mother Earth Peanut Butter is manufactured in New Zealand from Australian or Argentinian hi-Oleic peanuts.
