Peanut Butter

Today, in my miserable state of drugginess, coughing, swollen red itchy eyes, hair hurts, joints hurt, crankiness, can’t sleep, can’t stay awake, stuck inside, except to do a few short chores then come back inside to recover from ragweed allergies, i spent some time trying to find some peanut butter that is made in the USA from peanuts grown and roasted in the USA. I’ve never seen any in the grocery stores, but thought surely there is something out there. Come to find out – not much!

I’ve ordered from Georgia Grinders today and plan to call another producer, Snider Farms Peanut Barn in Hillis, Oklahoma on Monday since i can’t figure out their online ordering situation.

Read the ingredients on peanut butter – you will often be surprised by what is included! I want only peanut butter or peanut butter with a pinch of salt. No corn syrup, no palm oil, no sugar, nothing but peanuts. And now, i’m really cranking down to insist that the peanuts are sourced in the United States and the butter is produced at a small family business.

What kind of peanut butter do you buy? if any. How did you choose the brand you’ve selected?

Shabbat Shalom!
