And in other news ....

  • The Peanut Butter in Question.
    Ok. So the three in back aren't expired peanut butters. The organic (never opened) has a use-by date 2005. However. The other jars ALL contain hydrogenated oils. The Organic? Peanuts and oil. What would YOU keep of the four?
    I'm thinking if the organic peanut butter tastes ok? It should be fine. I'm just clearing out the foods that are processed - I've been sick for a month and I need food that I can actually digest! I was trying NOT to throw out good food. There may come a day when 6 year old peanut butter is all we got! *LOL*

    Well. I opened the 'good' jar - the "just peanuts and oil" jar - and smelled it. Smelled ok. Stirred it and mixed the oil in real good. Then ... yes, I did ... I took a taste. I'm gonna use it. I just may make some amazing peanut butter fudge!!! Not exactly on the Low Carb diet menu ... but, if I can find it? A recipe for "Peanut Butter made with Stevia" is exactly what this little girl's gonna do. (And yes - I will use *gasp* real powdered sugar if necessary.)

    If I opt out of the fudge, I'll make some yummy little doggy treats for my new little canine friends!

    ****** UPDATE ******

    Well. It was a bear. Mixing all that oil, in with all those peanuts! And I added a packet of Stevia to sweeten it a bit. And by golly. I didn't die when I ate the sandwich I made! AND neither did Phil. So 6 year old REAL peanut? Pretty good stuff.

LOL! Is someone a peanut butter hoarder?? :-) I can't say much... I evidently have the same problem with salt. At one point I had, like, 3 or 4 of the big containers of Morton's shoved in the cabinet. I kept buying thinking I didn't have any! LOL, it happens.

Anyway, glad you were able to salvage the organic peanut butter! Stevia fudge?? Wow. If you make it, let us know how it turns out, and blog the recipe! :)
