PB & J

Since my wallet does not match my culinary appetite I have been feasting on such delicacies as tuna, totinoe's, raman and my old stand by, pb & j. But, being as health conscious as I am, I noticed my pb to be more than juicy of late. Could this be due to lack of refrigeration? It's been formerly housed in the cupboard...

What brand of PB? Are you using the stuff with hydrogenated oil that is supposed to stay solid or the natural stuff where the oil separates and pools on top?

Skippy Super Chunk Yum!

My mom makes her own healthy version in her high powered blender. Vita mix I believe it's called. Kinda bland for my tastes but she loves it and it is nothing but peanuts. No salt or sugar.

We tried to get our son to acclimate to the natural stuff but it just didn't work. (I don't like it either for that matter.)

nforbes is right about keeping things in the fridge, but I usually have a jar of Jif in the pantry, not the fridge, and it stays solid. Our house is not a/c'd either.

I like the all natural stuff. Not for organic reasons just taste. Jiffy is like maple flavored syrup, not the really thing.

I notice if you leave the PB in the cabinet it gets rancid. We have to keep ours in the fridge.

We keep our PB in the Cabinet. No problems with it. We eat a jar about every two weeks.

Put some PB in a Kong ball and they'll be delighted for hours.

I just read a "helpful hint" somewhere recently about dogs and pb. Said...if your dogs like to beg at the table, take a dogbone with several twists, or crevices of some sort, and smush (my word, not the article's) peanut butter down into it. The dog(s) will work on it all through your meal, and leave you alone.

I HATE that we have to keep EVERYTHING in the fridge. I'm not sure its really the heat, I think its the humidity. I want to invent a cabinet dehumidifier for the kitchen that would become as standard as a fridge in kitchens all over this part of the world. I think its a million dollar idea, I'm willing to give it away because if someone else did it I'd be glad to pay for it and not have to do the work 🙂

Seriously, one cabinet in every kitchen here should have a mild dehumidifier in it so we don't have to store a million things in our fridges...seems like it could be done affordably, both initial installation wise and also energy wise if done right.

As soon as HSN gets stock by in, I'm ordering as many of the Debbie Meyer lockin' lid containers as I can. I can't explain how they work, but you can google Debbie Meyer. Supposed to really help on freshness and keeping "things" out!

Juanita, do you have them already? I checked the site & the reviews weren't very good. I'd love to get them too but the reviews stopped me.

Trade,
Ditto on that, the bags work great, but the reviews for the containers complained about the tops not fitting properly and water build up in the sealed container.

I don't have any yet, but after posting, I checked HSN. They had the ones I wanted, so I just ordered them. I read the reviews too, but the ones I ordered have the locking lids (like lock n lock), so that should take care of that problem. Usually takes about 10 days for hsn orders to arrive. I'll let you know!

I cannot remember where we got ours but we have been using a brisker in STT for about 15 years - low electric draw - keeps cereals,crackers,envelopes,etc. dry.

Reminds me of a commercial I did several years back. Wrote one for a talking horse, inviting folks to come out and ride horses on the beach in Corpus Christi. Went out there with a jar of Jiff, had them smear some on the horse's upper lip and turned the camera on. Diablo talked up a storm! What a performer! Client loved the spot (and I think the horse loved the PB)...

stiphy, love your idea of a dehumidifier cabinet. Start writing it up. I'll supply the PB.....
