15 ounces shelled and skinned Spanish peanuts [+]
2 1/2 tablespoons peanut oil, divided [+]
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided [+]
1 1/2 teaspoons honey [+]

Method

1. To roast peanuts, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Rinse the peanuts under cool water to remove excess dirt.  Pat dry, place in a large bowl, and toss with the 1 tablespoon peanut oil and 1 tablespoon salt until well coated.

2. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Roast in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, rotating halfway through cooking.  Remove from the oven and cool.  They will continue to "cook" and become crunchy as they cool.

3. Place the peanuts, remaining salt and honey into the bowl of a food processor. Process for 1 minute.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl.  Place the lid back on and continue to process while slowly drizzling in the oil and process until the mixture is smooth, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.  Place the peanut butter in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
