Thread: Unsweetened peanut butter

    Default Unsweetened peanut butter

    Why is it so hard to find? Every brand has some form of sugar as the
    2nd ingredient after peanuts. Even the "natural" pb's are "peanuts,
    sugar, palm oil, and salt" (they took out some of the good peanut oil
    and replaced it with nasty greasy palm oil) I guess it's natural
    because they used sugar instead of HFCS, and palm oil instead of
    hydrogenated soybean oil. Sweetened PB works just fine for cooking, but
    not for eating on a cracker. I used to make my own, (the new blender
    made me think of it again) the trick will be finding salted dry roasted
    peanuts without a lot of MSG and yeast extract and dextrose and crap
    added.

    The best peanut butter I've ever eaten was made in the store at a
    Kroger's many years ago. They had a peanut grinder with a big hopper of
    redskin peanuts and you ground however much you wanted into a plastic
    carton. I liked the gritty texture from the skins -- although a big
    part of it might have been the novelty.

    That looks good. Not available here, even though it's distributed by
    Smucker's (must be a regional brand)

    Stores in my area all have at least two kinds of natural with only
    peanuts and salt. Are you sure you've looked thoroughly? Smuckers is
    very good and widely available.

    I saw it in the store -- it is sweetened. No emulsifiers, but god
    forbid they leave out the sugar!

    You can make your own at home in a food processor. Nuts other than
    peanuts are even better.

    There are various natural brands available by region. Keep looking
    and/or go to the speciality shops or the more expensive places.

    At Fred Myer as well as some local health food stores, they have a
    peanut butter machine where you buy the peanuts you want and it's free
    to make your own peanut butter.

    Just buy raw (right from the) farm peanuts and roast them yourself.
    A friend of mine gives me some each year.
    No worries about any additives that you don't care for.

    Personally, I prefer Jif!@

    Yeah, but you still need to find and buy the right roasted peanuts,
    not so easy.

    I use the organic peanuts right at the store and grind them at the
    store.

    I always see grind-your-own nut butter machines in health food stores so
    what the problem is is unclear. How do you roast peanuts? My guess is
    that you stick them in a 300 degree oven for an hour.

    I like Jif because it's tasty. Ground peanuts are just too bland. Jif
    has a new hazelnut chocolate spread. I dislike hazelnuts but it could be
    a good seller for Jif - if they put in enough sugar. :-)

    Do you shop Costco? Kirkland has their own brand and I believe it is
    all natural, organic and unsweetened. I've heard that it is good.
