The Fact: Dynamite is made with peanuts

Peanut oil can be processed to produce glycerol, which can be used to make nitroglycerin, one of the constituents of dynamite. Note however, there are other processes that can be used to make dynamite without using peanuts at all.

I wouldn't mess around with pure nitroglycerin. That stuff is VERY unstable. Dynamite is a stable version of Nitroglycerin. Back in the 1800's, when the continental railroad was being built, before dynamite was invented, in order to blast holes through mountains, workers would manually light Nitroglycerin and many died due to premature detonation. Seriously, don't screw with that stuff unless you are very sure you know what to do.
