Where can I buy a good peanut sauce?

I love to make stir-fries and I need to find a go-to peanut sauce to cook with! When I eat Thai, I don't like the sauce to be too sweet, and I really enjoy spicy peanut sauce. I don't even know where to begin looking! Does President's Choice make a good one? Or are there other, more obscure brands I should try? I live and grocery shop in the west end, primarily, but I'd go downtown.

  1. I have yet to find decent peanut sauce from a jar. What I do is buy it from thai restaurants. They are more then willing to sell it.

      1. T&T supermarkets - If you like making stir-fries, you'll love this place.

        1. The "Memories of ...." one isn't bad, but I'll agree that homemade is easy and so much tastier. (I make a modified version of Waverman's version at the LCBO website; takes less than 5 minutes, and all ingredients except maybe fresh coriandor are pantry staples.)

            We make our own too, but we start with President's Choice "Just Peanuts" crunchy PB. No salt, no sugar, so we just add a little hot sauce and some other spices, and bingo - instant satay sauce.

          2. President Choice' peanut sauce is excellent. Tsang's is good too.
