I've been wondering, can peanut butter be melted, or otherwise thinned to around the same consistancy as pancake syrup? More so for your normal/common Jif or Skippy types, but also for the au-natural type.

thanks Smile

Sure, it can be melted. Just add hot water, a small amount at a time, to get it to the consistency you want. I make a great peanut butter dressing for an Asian noodle salad that uses melted peanut butter as the base.

Not only that but my kids used to love melted peanut butter mixed with bananas and raisins on wheat.

No water needed just a slow warmup in a pan until the peanut butter is stir-able, stir in the banana pieces and then a good handful of raisins. Let cool, then spread onto bread.

Yum.

I thin mine down , when making a tofu sauce base, with water + soysauce



I grind my peanut butter in the store so it does not have time to seperate as does prepackaged natural peanut butter does so I dont know if what I do will work , if that is the type you are using..

You gotta use the good stuff: just peanuts. Don't bother with the sugared up Jif or Skippy.

Ugh! Gross.

The trouble with peanuts, which are actually a legume, is that they consist of a rather strange mix of starch, proteins, and fats.

Indigestible to some, and deadly to others.

That said, I only ever buy the economy sized jars of super-crunchy, and boiled salted peanuts are a part of my family heritage. :wink: :wink:

Vegemite goes into all my casseroles and stew dishes. Try it sometime. Mixing it with peanuts is sacreligeous.

Mixing our native spread with a poor American copy is sacreligeous. Very Happy

That natural peanut butter without the sugar and hydrogenated whatevers almost liquifies at room temperature once you get the oil mixed back in.

Actually, if I was concsiously trying to avoid the fats, I'd opt for Tahini, which is the other peanut paste.

I never heard of Tahini. What is it?

Actually, I only avoid certain kinds of fats, and peanut is okay, except maybe for the calorie count. About all I try to avoid is carbs, and I don't get silly about that.
