How to make groundnut oil at home. You can start this business and make money by 
1. Getting enough groundnut: Start by buying groundnut from the market. You can buy a small paint bucket depending on how much oil you will be needing (3 cups of groundnut should give you about 1 cup of oil).

2. Clean up the groundnuts:
This is the most time consuming part  of this business so it is important i let you know. unless you bought the groundnut that has already been shelled and cleaned up, you will haveto break the hard shells yourself and bring out the groundnut. Remove the back or peelings  to easily do this you can fry at low heat the for like 5 to 6 minutes or wash them in cold water then warm water.

3. Soak the groundnut: Put the groundnut you washed in a clean bowl, then pour warm water on it. Allow the groundnut to soak in warm water for 11-14 minutes, so that the groundnut can get soft.

4. Grind the groundnuts: Now, drain the water, then take the groundnut to a local mill to blend, let them preheat the machine before pouring the groundnut. But if you have a blender, blend the groundnut until it becomes smooth like butter.

To make it less difficult to blend, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of warm water but not too much water so it doesn't make it watery.

5. Refrigerate:
Pour the peanut paste into an air-tight container and cover the lid tightly. Leave the container inside the refrigerator for at least 24 hours. Do NOT disturb the container for rest of the time, after 24 hours or more, some of the oil have risen to the top of the container.

6. Separate the Oil: After the oil has risen to the top, you have to separate the oil from the paste, scrub the oil on top  into a separate bowl.

There is still much oil in the paste, so strain the paste thoroughly for some oil to come out or better still, fry the paste until all water dry off  and you will see your oil still coming out, remove the oil and use a clean cloth or napkin  and squeeze the fried paste for more oil to come out.

7. Store the Oil
 Pour your oil in clean and unused bottle ready for sale, Close the lid tightly and keep.
