1. Insert the chopping blade into the work bowl of the Food Processor. Pulse peanuts about 10 times and then process until drops of oil are visible and the mixture is very smooth, about 3 ½ to 4 ½ minutes. (You may need to stop to scrape down periodically.)

2. Add salt and pulse 2 to 3 times to incorporate. Adjust seasoning as desired.

TIP: This method can be done with any of your favorite nuts; try adding sweet or savory spices to the spread for more complex flavor.
