10 recipes to make life better with peanut butter
Think fudge, cheesecake and quick fixes to your midnight hunger pangs
They say there is nothing that a spoonful of peanut butter cannot fix, and we agree. The condiment, which was first introduced at the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904, became a source of protein during the first two world wars. Since then, it has found its way into our plate time and again. Armed with a rich history and obviously being an enduring favourite, most of us have a jar of it in kitchen at all times. While you already know that you can eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon or pair it with jelly on bread for a classic PB&J sandwich, the options don't stop there. It is the perfect contender for all our experiments in the kitchen. It is chewy, nutty and vegan, all at once. From an array of options like noodles to bread (and desserts of course!), you can make it all with this sweet, savoury spread.
