“You can make Cajun Peanut Butter by omitting the egg white and follow the recipe as directed. Puree the cooled peanuts to desired consistency in a food processor, approximately 1 minute for a smooth peanut butter, less time for chunky. This can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Remember there is a short shelf life because there are no preservatives.”
