Homemade peanut butter

I just got a food processor and I want to try to make my own peanut butter. I know it's pretty simple - peanuts, salt, and maybe oil, but I do not know the quantities. Does anyone have experience making nut butters? I know it'd probably taste better if I bought peanuts in the shell and roasted them myself, but what I have is roasted peanuts that are "lightly salted". What amounts should I use to make good homemade peanut butter?

Roast the peanuts (I usually drizzle them with honey then roast them). Use a pinch of salt for every cup of peanuts and one teaspoon of peanut or vegetable oil and puree in food processor until desired texture. If too thick, add one more teaspoon of oil. Here's a video on how to make it. Good luck. Peanut Butter Recipe - How to Make Peanut Butter Video - About.com
