Simple Peanut Sauce
The simplest Peanut Sauce recipe, common in the Congo region, is made with just three ingredients -- roasted peanuts, salt, and water. Roast shelled peanuts on the stovetop or in the oven, making sure to stir and turn them frequently. Remove skins and any remaining shells. Grind or crush the peanuts into a paste. Pour the paste into boiling water. (Start with two parts peanut paste to one part water.) Stir and simmer it into a smooth sauce, adding water if necessary. Add salt to taste.
