How to make Spicy Peanut Butter (Okwo Ose, Ose Oji)

In Nigerian we use Spicy Peanut Butter to eat garden eggs and kolanut during traditional events. Some people use it to prepare Groundnut Soup (Peanut Soup). I use it as bread and cookie spread and in smoothies.

For ordinary peanut butter without the spiciness, all you need to do is:

  1. Blend roasted peanuts or groundnuts till very smooth.
  2. Add salt to your taste and mix very well.
  3. Transfer to a container and enjoy in any of the ways stated above.

But if you want to make spicy peanut butter, you need to add pepper and calabash nutmeg while blending. Only heavy duty grinders can blend these to perfection. In Nigeria, we use the heavy duty grinders found in Nigerian markets to make the perfect peanut butter.
