I don't know, but I just adore the smoothness of a newly opened jar of peanut butter, it's almost like sacrilege for me to destroy it...

Gotta love gravity.

Mmmm....creamy peanut butter....

I love a fresh jar of Skippy, but the Girl loves Jiff the heretic she is.

I love the *pank* sound of breaking the seal on a new jar. After that, you kinda get to know the jar...it becomes predictable...and eventually boring. The second time I dip my butterknife in it, it just seems like an old hat.

Maybe it's the bachelor in me, but the "pank-peel-dip-spread-ahhhhh" feeling is what I'm after. Which is probably why I have 8 jars of PB in my cupboard.

Sounds like most of my relationships. *rimshot*

Boy am I ever glad that this came up! I have almost as many opinions about this as I do pickles.

I like crunchy peanut butter, actually, over creamy. I mean, instead of--not over as in "on top" of. Also, what is with the tall skinny jars!? Even the bulk kind you get at Sam's or wherever is deeper than it is wide--a big mistake. I don't like getting in on my hands unless I'm eating it with celery or apples, so getting it all over the tips of my fingers and knuckles whilst I'm scooping it from the jar is enough to make me pick another snack.

There. I said it.

I love it new, old, on celery, on apples, in granola, and apparently recently expired is just fine too :D

I prefer crunchy over creamy.

However, I have become a PB snob and only enjoy nearly pure organic brands. Don't give me that filler crap. I want peanuts.

There's a brand that's kept with the organics/all naturals that comes in a squat jar. You should check it out.

Here's a little something LOG might appreciate: when making bean soup, slip in about one half to a full teaspoon of smooth peanut butter to the pot and let simmer for a few minutes before serving. Even tomato based soups will be enhanced by the flavor; and your guests will wonder, yet never be able to replicate, how you managed to make the soup taste so damn good. :)

With anything else, I'm all for all natural, organics, etc, but I love Kraft peanut butter. The one with the teddy bears on the front. I'm sure it's the great gobs oh hydrogenated fats that give it its texture, but I just can't bring myself to care.

I think I'll go eat a big spoonful actually.

It works to enhance the flavor beyond what you'd expect, yet doesn't make the broth taste like peanut butter at all.

Picked that one up from a Kenyan recipe I read about some time ago, and expanded it to all of the bean soups I make these days. :)

Rookie, everyone knows that peanut butter should only be eaten with a ladel.

Also, what is with the tall skinny jars!?

Simple...the skinnier the jar, the tighter the seal, therefore, the louder the *pank* I dunno, maybe it's a guy thing.

I've used it in tomato based soups, but never in a strictly tomato soup. I'd still try it, though, and see what you think. (Maybe on a smaller scale, say about one quarter or third of a teaspoon to start.)

*gags a little* I'm sure there's added sugar too. Honestly, why does PB need sugar? Other than, you know, Americans like to kill themselves with it (speaking as one who somewhat did for years).

Come to the light side. I'm sure you'll find something better than Kraft. Just walk to the specialty aisle and look at all those all natural/organic choices. You're there anyways and the environment will :heart: you more :D

Dang, now I want PB, and I already had a PB-banana smoothie (NO added sugar ;) ) and a PB granola bar (homemade, and yes to added sugar. Honey anyways. And applesauce and raisins), AND scooped at the bottom of the jar of PB till it bled. Mmm, Peanut Butter.

Not a chance lady. You find me one of those all natural PBs that isn't grainy, and doesn't have to be stirred for 20 minutes before I can put it on toast, and I'll try it. Maybe.

I've got a wicked cool recipe for PB and banana muffins. There's sugar in it though, so I'm sure you wouldn't be interested. :tongue

(I just ate close to half a cup of PB with a spoon.)

I buy this on sale AND in bulk (thus the expired PB in my house). I can pull it out of the fridge and it still spreads well for cold PB. Most stores carry this brand, that I've seen.

Sugar can always be cut (down)! It's switching it from flour to gluten free that's the problem. (Why yes, I do have food intolerances AND reflexive hypoglycemia. Joy.)

And I'm not totally against sugar, I just don't think it has any business in basic foods since I can't flipping remove it and my sweet tooth is far more sensitive than it used to be. You know how many quality yogurts have added cane sugar, or worse, corn syrup? The bastards!

(otoh, if a company adds corn syrup, they aren't fitting under my definition of quality)

Some creamy Jiff and marshmallow cream on waffles is the frigging best. Nothing like it in the world.

(Just so y'all know, I eat marshmallow cream on a lot of stuff. And a lot more with the marshmallow cream/peanut butter combination. Oh man, but waffles is the tops. It's my super secret obsession, marshmallow cream. I love it. It's excellent on unsalted/unbuttered popcorn.)

On the PB front, I love Trader Joe's creamy PB. It's all peanuts (no added sugar or weird stuff) and perfectly smooth. It even spreads well right out of the fridge. Can't ask for more than that.

I use to like PB and grape jelly.
The jelly was always a little too sweet and thick for me though.
Thankfully I found a better sandwich; creamy peanut butter with honey on white bread.
Once, I actually wrote over 300 words on a PB and honey sandwich for my Media writing class, without using any visual description. I surprised myself with that.
