What is your favorite brand of peanut butter?

#34940 3 years, 4 months ago
And why?

I'm a coupon shopper, so I don't have a brand loyalty. But I recently got a jar of Peter Pan Honey Roasted Creamy, full of flavor-rich preservatives that really hits the spot.

Actually, the ingredient list is not too bad except for the hydrogenated oil.....which for some reason is supposed to be bad. Why don't they just nitrousenate it?
It's also got rapeseed, which can't be good for you. I've been eating a lot of this shit and feeling a little rammy lately.

Typically name brand peanut butter, will contain water, sugar and some kind of oil. This is because, when they make the peanut butter
they take the actual peanut oil out, and sell it seperately, because it's worth a lot of money. So they have to replace that with cheaper
oils such as rapeseed oil. Ideally you should get the pure, higher grade, "just peanuts" brands. But, for a quick, high quality peanut
butter, that is also less expensive, make your own. Just peanuts, roast them at 350, for 30 mins, and into the food processor. and blend
until desired consisitancy. You can add almonds, pistachio's, or any kind of nut you like. And it's the best quality possible.

Run away from the hydrogenated oil!

1 cup peanuts + 1 cup cashews + 1 food processor = No more Jif, ever again!

What do you have with the peanut butter? Jam? Fluff? Ever try a fried Peanut butter and bannana sandwich? Good stuff.
And yeah, the hydrogenated oil is real bad. I thought they stopped using that.
