  • Peanut butter.

    Peanut butter... everyone loves it, right?

    As for me, I've gotten tired of the commercial brands...too much salt, and/or sugar etc. I now make my own from spanish peanuts which I buy raw, dry roast (320 degrees for 20 minutes), use my old vita-mix to make the butter, then mix it with one third honey. Very satisfying, delicious and even nutitious.

    Still dig Skippy super-chunk though the Saltines I put it on are not as good. Most all crackers have changed, maybe baked in a new kind of oil or something?
    Sometime it's subtle, in others it's very noticeable. Bring back Bacon thins!

      You know you've got some special PB when there's an inch of oil sitting on top

        I used to take the chunky I got at the co-op and add a little bit of honey and some powdered milk- the milk gives it a more complete protein according to Frances Moore Lappe in Diet for a Small Planet.

          Those of us of a certain age recall rejoicing when they finally got the chemistry right and the "real" PB quit doing that! What a pain in the ass to have to stir it every time, and invariably, by the time you got to the bottom of the can you had 10-20% wastage as the oil-deprived part settled into a substance harder than rebarred concrete.

            Well, there's a food going 'round and it's a sticky, sticky goo
            - Peanut, peanut butter
            It tastes to good, but it's so hard to chew
            - Peanut, peanut butter
            People everywhere, they think it's the most
            - Peanut, peanut butter
            Early in the morning they put it on their toast
            - Peanut, peanut butter

            Chorus: I like peanut butter, creamy peanut butter, chunky peanut butter, too!

            My old dog started barking in the middle of the night
            - Peanut, peanut butter
            He woke up all my neighbors, I almost got in a fight
            - Peanut, peanut butter
            So I gave him peanut butter just to quiet him down
            - Peanut, peanut butter
            He chewed himself to sleep and he never made a sound
            - Peanut, peanut butter
            Chorus

            I went to a dinner party and what did they eat?
            - Peanut, peanut butter
            I took a big bite and it stuck to my teeth
            - Peanut, peanut butter
            People going 'round look like they got the mumps
            - Peanut, peanut butter
            They were eating peanut butter in great, big hunks
            - Peanut, peanut butter
            Chorus

            Cultural commentary at its best

            name the group

            Don't really expect anybody to know that - be a surprise to me. My only inside lane on that is that I googled - the universal reference

              Ed: Hey, what kind of peanut butter is that? Is that the crunchy kind?

              Ralph: Yes, it's the crunchy kind, and I can prove it to you. When this jar hits your head, you'll hear a crunch!

                The trade-off of course being that "unseparated" peanut butter uses hydrogenated vegetable oil, whereas natural peanut butter does not and is generally considered very heart-healthy.

                  I put crunchy peanut butter on my porridge with honey. Its like eating a sandwich which has already been chewed in the mouth.
