We’ve become peanut butter snobs. I only noticed this when I first tried peanut butter in Canada. It is sweet! The general off-the-shelf, Skippy’s here has added sugar, making for a sweet spread, rather than the nutritious nutty spread I am used to.
I guess I just prefer peanut butter with one ingredient.. Not the 7 that Skippy’s has.
So. Snobs we are – we make our own. Grab a bag of peanuts. Chuck in the food processor (or blender) and leave to whirr for a good 5 minutes. Enjoy the purest peanut butter you can get.
Jesse’s become hooked on this, making the most delicious almond butter as well. Oh goodness. You can’t beat raw and natural almond butter, swiped with a finger off the side of the processor. It is so naturally sweet I cannot understand what Skippy’s was thinking.
