Peanut butter

I'm a peanut butter addict!
My favorite brand of peanut butter has got to be Adam's. One of the many things I love eating it with are dried fruits! Especially with dates! Of course I love it in African peanut soup and thai peanut sauce!

What is your favorite PB brand and recipe/snack?

  1. I just googled African peanut soup & it looks really good. Do you have a favorite recipe?

      I tried a few different recipes but this one is by far my favorite!

      I omitted the eggplant since I didn't have any on hand the first time I made it and it tasted great without it. Now that I make it, I haven't bothered to try it with eggplant.
      I also tried it with chunky peanut butter and it gives it a great texture!

        Thank you. I have most of the ingredients, except eggplant, so I guess I will be making your version :).
        I am in the middle of a crazy snowstorm in Jerusalem, where the temperature has plummeted from 75 degrees F to freezing in a matter of days. Don't imagine most stores will be open today, so I'm making do with supplies I have on hand.
        BTW, My mother made peanut butter stuffed dates when I was a kid, and I made them for my kids years later!

          Oh my goodness. Hope all goes well there!
          They're amazing, aren't they? (: Made them for a few years and I never get tired of them!

            Well, it's finally stopped snowing.
            I made the peanut butter soup yesterday. Then the power failed. So I ate the soup wrapped in blankets, by the light of my emergency battery powered lamp.
            As you might imagine, it tasted fantastic -- very warming & tasty! I like the texture as well as the flavor that the pb adds.

        I love this version- usually i use two sweet potatoes instead of one regular potato:

      3. I eat Adams natural unsalted chunky. I like PB with apple slices or on celery. Very occasionally I will have a PBJ.

        1. My peanut butter loves are pretty simple:
          Peanut butter and honey sandwiches
          Peanut butter and banana sandwiches
          Peanut butter cookies (with peanut chunks)
          Peanut butter dipping sauce (love making my own peanut dipping sauce when I go for pho)
          Ants on a log (celery filled with peanut butter topped with raisins)

          1. Snack is Triscuits with PB, yum! Brand is Jif.

            1. Peanut butter and jelly (any jelly will do except grape) or peanut butter and raisins... honey is acceptable too, but a bit messy. All on nice bread and made with NATURAL peanut butter, preferably the old-fashioned kind that you stir up and that has no added sugar. Which around here means Smuckers Natural or Publix store brand (nobody else seems to sell old-fashioned PB any more) If you don't want the bread, peanut butter on apple is nice too.

                Not a fan of grape jelly either... Ever had it with homemade pumpkin butter? So divine!

                  I've had a love/hate relationship with grape jelly. As a kid, grape jelly was cheap and that was pretty much what we could afford, plus you got a free glass. It was gross but, as many years have past, occasionally I have a soft spot for some and really enjoy it.

                  1. re: treb

                    They don't HAVE grape jelly in Australia... but we had a fad of drinking WAY too much red grape juice when I was a kid, and the flavour is almost identical. I get all the grape I need at Communion. I'd rather have no jelly at all than grape...
