I've just had it for breakfast and lunch, two days in a row.

On whole wheat toast for breakfast and heaped on apple slices for lunch.

back in my, um....herbal diet days (think munchies) I had a very close relationship with PB....we were almost inseparable....and the goober stuff, the mixed strawberry jam and pb in a single jar.....light up then get a spoon and empty the jar.....I killed alot of brain cells during those years, and ate alot of pb

to make it beer and/or pairing related....it might work with a fruity wheat beer with a nice bread-like quality to it.

More often that not, I pair it with milk, straight out the jug.

You should try making your own peanut butter. It's significantly better than the store-bought stuff. Couldn't be simpler: 3 cups of roasted peanuts (plain, not the peanuts with spices, maltodextrin, etc.), a dollop (about a tablespoon) of honey and a three-finger pinch of kosher salt. Blend in a heavy duty blender or food processor, stopping occasionally to push the peanut butter back into the blades. If you have standard household blender or food processor you might need to add a little peanut oil to make a smooth paste. A VitaMix or Blendtec takes 5-10 minutes. A standard blender might take a little longer between pulsing and scraping down the sides. If you add oil, store the peanut butter in the fridge to keep it from separating out. This makes about 2 cups of peanut butter that has a little more texture than store-bought but isn't chunky by any stretch of the imagination. My kids have become complete peanut butter snobs

I like it that way too. It's the 7 months wait that sucks.

I have the powdered peanut butter, it's called PB2. It's fabulous, tastes just like the real thing, and so much lighter on fat and carbs! Mix it in directly with your jelly for a taste treat that will blow your mind!

I am growing peanuts this year, not nearly enough to do much with them though. I didn't want fill the whole garden with peanuts so it is just for fun. I grew them here once before as a kid and they grew well only not enough to eat really. I planed about 100 seeds.
