    But I _like_ my homemade nut butter - I eat it almost every day and
    probably go through a jar a week by myself.

    Settling is an interesting thing - my homemade stuff never settles
    enough for me to notice except if I take it with me somewhere, e.g., on
    a car ride that's a few hours long. By the time I get there, I can see
    that the jostling has started to separate the oil and the solids.

    I've never refrigerated my stuff - can't see why I would as it keeps
    just fine on the counter for as long as it takes us to eat it here.

    I'm convinced that almonds are great for you and I'm not convinced that
    peanuts, which aren't even nuts, are all that great in terms of health.
    That's why I made mine mostly almonds then played around until I had a
    combination that I liked the taste of.

    I think there's a whole interesting, and probably flamed-filled,
    discussion to be had on why we eat what we eat. Some folks will say, no
    doubt, that all they care about is that their food tastes good and who
    cares if it's good for you or not. I am definitely not in that camp.
    It's nutrition, it's sustenance, and knowing how good for me or not
    someithing is really matters to my enjoyment of eating it, probably
    because I've found that eating better makes me feel better and feeling
    good long-term always trumps the transient pleasure of how something
    tastes.

    All of which is my way of saying that store-bought peanut butter may
    taste better than my homemade mostly-almond butter, but not by enough
    that I'm going to eat it.

    Just my opinion, your mileage may vary and all that.

    When I buy a jar of PB, it's gone in a few days. What do you do, eat
    one gram of it per year?

    Your paranoia might be helped by a good psychiatrist!!!! (and not
    watching tv news).

    Once in a while I have a peanut butter sandwich or I have it with some apple
    slices or dill pickles. I am eating whole wheat bread now and for some
    reason I don't really like peanut butter with that. I prefer it on white
    bread. But since there are only the two of us and daughter has to eat whole
    wheat, I can't buy two different loaves of bread. Wouldn't be a problem if
    my husband were here because he eats a lot of sandwiches.

    Guess what dumb****, I do watch the news. And I watch out in my every
    day life for ****ing weirdos like you. Now go obsess about something

    Coincidentally, in the interim, I thought I'd try almond butter
    mixed with flax and pumpkin seeds. I dunno how it will compare
    tastewise, but it will probably be more healthful, without the
    possible aflatoxins. Oh great, Dr, Weil says that aflatoxins have
    also been found in pecans, pistachios and walnuts... and other
    things.

    Apparently. I do not seem to be getting them when other people are, but
    then... Frontier seems to be all screwed up. I sent myself an e-mail just
    because it was quicker to do it that way than to go another route. Or it
    should have been. Took over an hour for me to actually get the e-mail.

    Really? Lovely. My favorite nut of late has been the hazelnut. Kind of
    hard to find them though. Most places don't seem to sell them. I did get
    them in bulk at Winco today. They are fine but I really hate buying bulk
    nuts because you just never know how old they are or if they cleaned the bin
    out well before filling it.

    Unfortunately, I understand this email issue. Verizon's delivery
    leaves a lot to be desired. Therefore, I have a lot of things
    coming in through my old email address, including the alerts in
    question. If I want to reply, I have to do so through my new
    email address. That is awkward, but at least I stand a better
    chance of getting the emails.

    Yes, really. But peanuts hold a higher risk. I don't THINK I
    saw hazelnuts, which I love, mentioned. Almonds were mentioned.

    I know I could Google, but do you want to tell me what an aflatoxin is
    and why I should be concerned? This is the first time I've heard the
    term.
