Peanut Butter


I have THREE jars of salmonella peanut butter, one of which I'm about 80 percent of the way through. Of course, the power of suggestion is so strong, that I immediately felt ill upon making this discovery. This is my punishment for not eating the healthy, organic, stuff with nothing but peanuts. But I hate stirring that crazy organic peanut butter! The oil on the top just spills over the side of the jar, making a giant mess. To say nothing of the fact that "real" peanut butter doesn't have that sweet, honey-roasted taste of Honey-Roasted Creamy Peter Pan brand. Well, or the salmonella, evidently.

Peter Pan?! Peter Pan?! Nooooo, Skippy is where it's at, HTT.

I agree with you -- that oil on top of the organic stuff, while salmonella-free, is nasty. I don't want to SEE how much oily fat I'm eating. It should be ready-mixed so that I can remain blissfully ignorant, focusing instead on the delicious creamy goodness.

Ah, but what you can do with all that nasty oil on top of the organic peanut butter is pour it off! That way, it's not only organic peanut butter made from nothing but peanuts, it's also LOW-FAT organic peanut butter!

OR you can use the oil from the top of the organic peanut butter (instead of vegetable oil or butter or margarine) when you make brownies, making them into peanut butter brownies... and if a little of the peanut butter itself mixes in, that's OK, too!
