Most of the peanut butter I eat is pretty much straight out of the jar, followed by milk. I rarely use it as an ingredient. :/

I have found a new appreciation for peanut butter living in a dorm as I now do.

My favorite method for eating it would be: Sandwich, with jelly or honey or banana.
It also spices up ice cream, or pretty much any dessert.
Also, basically any candy involving peanut butter (reese's etc)

I have little preference for either chunky or smooth

I have discovered that eating pineapple directly following peanut butter makes it not stick to your teeth, and I assume the same goes for ?anything acidic? hmmm

Doubtful. Jelly is acidic.

But fresh pineapple has an enzyme that denatures many proteins. Might do something to peanut butter.

That just sounds so... I mean, on its own, with chocolate, probably quite good, but between two slices of bread? Why ruin it?


And yeah, forgot about peanut butter and apples. Yum! Or bananas. Double yum!

Don't knock it till you've tried it.

Peanut butter and honey, oh yummy. I end up in a sugar coma after eating it. When I come out of the coma, I go for seconds.

Peanut butter and lettuce sandwich, with raisins.

Sounds strange, but my grandpop (who's got old-fashioned plain cooking tastes) is the one who told me about it. And it is pretty good. You get the crunchiness of lettuce, the sweetness of the raisins, and the creaminess of the peanut butter all mixing together quite nicely.

We used to put potato chips in our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. My best friend when I was a little kid loved that. I didn't like it so much but went along because his enjoyment was so convincing. [Smile] It did give them a nice crunch.

Actually, that's just weird enough to perk my interest... I might try that tomorrow. [Angst]

I know that was aimed at me... But the only way I'll eat the two is if the peanut butter is in a Thai-style peanut sauce on noodles. Then, that's good stuff.

I am not much into peanuts or peanut butter but I do like no-sugar-added pb with dill pickles on whole-wheat toast. Mmmm.

ketchupqueen, if you like Thai-style peanut sauce on noodles, do you like sesame tahini in various recipes, such as with mung bean noodles and veggies, Filopino-style?

The only more complicated combo being a peanut butter, jelly and marshmallow sandwich which is made on a campfire sandwich cooker. You butter the outside of the bread to keep it from sticking, make your PB&J as usual but put either mini marshmallows or fluff in between. Then you cook it on a stove burner (or campfire, I suppose) until it's golden brown on the outside. Wait a minute before cutting it, for it will ooze and burn you, and sprinkle powdered sugar on top (just don't try to inhale when you take a bite ;] ).

I highly recommend a Toas-Tite. (link to someone's blog about it)

You can find them on ebay usually.

I would have peanut butter, miracle whip and raisin sandwiches all the time as a kid. I wonder if I'd still like them now...

Yes. Though I am not a huge fan of sesame in any form, I will eat tahini. Also halva, actually.

Well, Tammy, by itself, peanut butter sticks to the roof of your mouth. So we have to do something.

I put a big spoonful of peanut butter in a pot of chili the other day. (Why? Because it seemed easier than chopping up pistachios.*)

It wasn't bad. It wasn't my favorite pot of chili, but it was an interesting variation.

I found that immediately after adding the peanut butter the chili had a strong peanut aroma and flavor. After cooking for another while (20 min? I forget) the peanut flavor faded significantly, leaving the chili with a nutty flavor but less redolent of Jif. So if you try this don't panic if at first it seems like you made a big pot of chili-flavored peanut butter. (I wonder if it's a matter of boiling off volatile compounds in the peanut butter, or of compounds becoming better absorbed and/or emulsified...)

*I haven't tried the pistachios yet. Next time, maybe. Or maybe pepitas if I don't have to shell them myself.

I've added peanut butter to thick soups, like mushroom barley or split pea, to make them more rich and creamy.

My dad used to always make it with sugar. Toasted, spread right away so it gets melty, liberal helpings of sugar, openface. Mmm... If the toaster wasn't so far away.. and if I had bread, I'd totally go make myself one right now.

I don't eat a lot of PB&J sandwiches these days. But I love it in a peanut sauce, like for chicken satay or gado gado (indonesian salad). And I have a strong nostalgia for the peanut butter version that Andes (of the Andes Mint) used to make (don't know if they still do)- my mother used to have a jar of them on her office desk.

But aiua, peanut butter already contains sugar! Apparently your dad likes a little ground peanuts with his sugar!

Peanut butter doesn't have added sugar in my mom's house. Just ground peanuts. So when she made peanut butter and banana sandwiches, she put honey on them.

You can get peanut butter without added sugar, or corn syrup, or other sweetener. It is usually marketed as "health" or "organic" peanut butter, and costs a little more. The oil sometimes separates out after sitting for awhile, and you have to stir it up. It can go rancid more quickly (unless they add some kind of preservatives), because sugar itself is a preservative.

That's what a nice cold glass of milk is for!

I don't think my mother ever made me a pb&j. A peanut butter sandwich, to me, was bread with peanut butter spread on it. The first time I tried it with jelly I thought it was nasty, and still do.

I like mine plain on wheat bread. Rye is for other things, like liverwurst or toasted w/ various kinds of cheese; don't like it w/ peanut butter.

I don't like p.b. in ice cream or in various other places it turns up, but think that it's inspired in Reese's. My current hard-to-find favorite: Reese's Stix.
