Frequently asked questions to make Haitian Peanut Butter:

  • How long does Haitian homemade peanut butter last? Usually, my peanut butter lasts about 3 months. However, I personally would not exceed 6 months. 
  • Can you use the Haitian peanut butter in cookies? Absolutely, be mindful it may give the dough a slight kick from the heat. 
  • Which oil is best to use to make homemade Haitian peanut butter? In Haiti, peanut butter is made with either olive oil or vegetable oil. However, for this recipe, I modified the recipe and used 100 percent peanut oil. 
  • How long should I roast the peanuts? I roast the peanut for about 2 minutes. The longer you roast the peanuts, the darker the ending result will be as well as the stronger the taste of the peanuts will come through.
