If peanut butter, definitely crunchy; also no salt, no sugar, and not hydrogenated. There are only two ways to use PB: in a PBJ sandwich or straight from the jar on a spoon. Well, maybe a third use--getting chewing gum out your kid's hair. Nothing else. Not Reeses PB cups or pieces, not cooking, and definitely not with bananas.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am 75,and it's always been crunchy! I even buy crunchy almond butter and mix it with PB.... then it's jam, jelly or honey on good multi-grain bread. That is my breakfast about 5 out of 7 days. I often have one just before bed. Teeth? When I had tooth problems, I was just more careful.

I remember asking my mother for a FULL PB & J sandwich when I was 5...had been eating one slice of bread folded over... but I saw the man next door with 2 slices of bread! Wow!...

lessee... 70+ years... thats gotta be-- hmmm...several tons? I think the PB industry owes me a free jar.

Jam or marmalade on peanut butter, esp on crumpets -- not every time but now & again. And a layer of ordinary butter under the peanut butter, always. This, of course, only a statement of my own taste, not asseverated as any sort of law, either moral or gastronomic.

As to smooth or crunchy: again, sometimes one, sometimes the other.

crunchy & I make my own - I put peanuts in my blender & use the coffee bean setting so the bits are BIG, then I mix in some oil.

yum - beautiful with butter or ricotta cheese underneath also yummy with sliced banana on top. Sometimes it's my lunch sandwich with ricotta underneath & salad on top.

sometimes I have a thin scrape of Vegemite underneath the PB -

PB & tomato &/or bread & butter cucumber (cucumber in a sweetish vinegar) with cheese melted on top is also very yummy

I get an organic make. It's a bit more expensive, but it doesn't have that ghastly sweet taste that the cheaper ones seem to have. To me, savoury MEANS savoury. And of course, Michael, on crumpets, one puts butter underneath the stuff. Butter's essential at every opportunity!
I'm not sure how my husband cooks his fiery dishes, but they seem to require pots of smooth peanut butter. I find that ghastly, but I never taste his food, so I live and let live!

Crunchy PB for me on a crispbread thin layer of butter first, topped with some cream cheese and cucumber. I am fond of PB with banana too but it all depends on my mood sometimes one of each if I cannot make up my mind. It would be interesting to use it in a recipe though, Eliza could you let me know of any to try? I have always fancied that it would go well with chicken and rice. As peanut butter is quite a distinctive taste already is it necessary to add any extra herbs / seasoning to it?

Hello there Patsy! Have just asked my husband, and here's one of his horrific efforts!
He roasts some chicken quarters first in the oven, to make sure they're thoroughly cooked. Then in a deep frying pan he heats Flora oil and slowly fries chopped onions, garlic and tomatoes. (Quantities are arbitrary) When they're soft, he adds about a pint of cold water. a crumbled Maggi chicken stock cube (yuk!) 2 heaped tablespoons of smooth peanut butter, 4 'Scotch bonnets' (those horribly hot chilli things) coarsely-ground pepper, three teaspoons of salt (far too much for his health, but Africans eat far too much salt anyway) 3 teaspoons of Sharwoods Madras curry powder, a teaspoonful of dried herbes Provencales (he found those in my cupboard and likes them!) and simmers it all slowly, stirring a bit. Then he adds the chicken and puts the lid on, for about 45 mins. He mashes up the Scotch bonnets to make it hotter still. I must say, it smells delicious, but don't whatever you do put any in your mouth, or you'll go through the roof.
He eats this with couc-cous, rice or noodles. While he's farting about with this muck, I'm cooking mince, mashed potatoes and spring greens.

John otSC - one additional use is to get beach tar off your feet, and smooth works better for that.

This was one of a set of questions we used to ask in the early 80's, I think - the memory has a flavor of late college. They were:
Smooth or crunchy? (for PB)
Folded or crumpled? (for TP) - and, if folded, on the lines or not?
Sean Connery or Roger Moore? (for James Bond)
Anybody remember the others? There were about 7, and the pattern of responses, not responses to any individual question, meant something I don't remember either.

"Sean Connery or Roger Moore? (for James Bond)"
.,,.

Aha, now there's a vital one. My late wife Valerie, who was on the whole quite an intelligent person [1st class Cambridge degree as mature student after missing out on univ first time around] maintained until her dying day that nobody but Connery could play Bond, in tones as if it were some sort of god-given unshakeable Law of the Universe established since the Creation or the Big Bang, whichever preceded.

To my questions as to whether the same applied to Garrick, or even Burbage, regarding the playing of Hamlet, she would simply stick metaphorical fingers in her ear and say it again.

LOL Patsy! Well, I'm making a steak and kidney pie for us both, but he sprinkles it with tons of curry powder (can you imagine?) once the plate arrives at the table. Most maddening, but over the years I've learned to let live. It's his choice after all. It's actually Ramadan now, and he should be fasting and not drinking until sunset. But he doesn't do it any more. I never have said anything, but he feels it's very bad for the kidneys (his own, not those in the pie) and he simply prays but doesn't do the rest. We always let the other do whatever he/she thinks fit, and that way we've been v happy over the years. The world could perhaps learn from this!
Best wishes Patsy, nice to hear from you.

I believe that the fasting rules are not so strict for anyone for whom they might be damaging, particularly when the month falls in the hottest part of the Summer. The young, the elderly, the infirm or ill, pregnant or nursing mothers should not fast.

I avoid peanut butter because the smell is most unpleasant, to my senses.

It's easier to spread the cream cheese on the peanut butter, rather than peanut butter on cream cheese (and I always use real butter first) - chopped celery adds an interesting texture and flavour as well, either with or instead of the lettuce.

And definitely NO BANANA.

Sandra... I would guess those statistics are pretty accurate. I can easily see why 'smooth' would be the default, as crunchy bits must be 'dealt with', and some for various reasons, can't do it.... and some just prefer smooth, just as some drink Bud Lite (bllaaahh) on purpose. Still, Bud Lite is the best selling 'beer' in the US.

PB & Maple syrup? Never tried it,..but sure! Sounds good!

Eliza, does your hubs have any recommendations for vegetarian African dishes involving peanut butter? I've made an African style soup with it before and it was really good!
