Heat the oil in a wok or large pan over medium high heat until shimmering (time 5 minutes, 350 degrees F). Add the peanuts and stir-fry for one minute. Reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking until the peanuts are golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove the peanuts to a paper towel lined half sheet pan and immediately season with salt.
Cool the peanuts completely (20 minutes), then transfer a third of the peanuts (one cup) to a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped (20 pulses). Remove the chopped peanuts from the food processor and set aside.
Add the remaining peanuts to the food processor and add the salt and honey. Process the peanuts for 5 minutes. Stop and scrape down the sides of the processor as needed.
Continue pureeing until the peanut butter is completely smooth. Add the chopped peanuts and pulse 3 to 4 times until well incorporated.

In a matter of one hour this young cub ate several salmon that were provided by her intelligent and fearless mother. Deep in the Alaskan wilderness this brown bear family provided my favorite image of the year.”
I don’t claim to be much of a photographer – I respect the art SO much though! Here is a cool tutorial that would never had crossed my mind – from PetaPixel:
How to Pick the Best Focal Length When Capturing Landscapes
Put together by photographer Steve Perry, the video tutorial above shares a collection of useful tips, advice and examples that help explain how to best think of and use focal lengths when you’re out capturing landscape photography.
Dispelling the myth that there is a “right” focal length for all landscape photography, Perry breaks down how every scene often requires a different lens, and why zooms should never be used as “cropping tools.”
He also shows how the relationship between subjects changes as the perspective and focal length change, breaking down what is an otherwise complicated concept into a concise run-through.
Whether you’re a seasoned vet looking for a solid refresher, or you’re just now getting into photography and parsing through the complex world of lenses, be sure to give this very useful tutorial a once (or twice) over.
Some dear friends of mine know how to do this! SO very cool! Take a look at this fun and informative video from Sploid on
