Have you ever noticed those peanut butter grinders in the grocery store? One day I decided to do a price comparison between that peanut butter and what I could get on the aisle. I discovered that, at least at WinCo, where I do most of my shopping, the freshly ground was cheaper!
So instead of buying a big jar of peanut better at Costco like my mom used to do (it would be rather hard, since I don’t have a Costco card, anyhow!), I buy a couple weeks’ supply freshly ground. That way I know exactly how old it is, what’s in it (peanuts, nothing more), and I can get more when I need it. One thing I really like is that I don’t have to spend time stirring the oil of a jar of 100% peanut butter, and wishing I could do a better job faster. Putting a cookie batter mixer on the end of an electric drill was my uncle’s solution, but it was still a lot of work and very messy! Buying freshly ground is so much better!
Works for me!
