We seldom use peanut butter at home but when we do the main use for it is not for bread but for this dish called Kare Kare a type of Filipino stew which uses peanut butter as its main recipe. Usually after cooking that dish the peanut butter will then be forgotten as we are not big bread consumers, so we usually end up with multiple jars of one time used peanut butter as we usually buy one and forget we have one. (Anyways don’t get it wrong we love peanut butter but we just prefer rice or something savoury for breakfast) So what do we do with all of that peanut butter if we don’t use it in bread? well here is the answer, this blog post.
