DIY peanut butter?

(article, Culinate staff)

If you're feeling overwhelmed by the number of products recently recalled in the Great Peanut Debacle, Marion Nestle's latest column in the San Francisco Chronicle'"Chewing — may make you even more wary. Nestle reminds readers that unless your brand of peanut butter requires you to stir in the oil that separates from the peanuts over time, you may be buying peanuts blended with hydrogenated oils (i.e., trans fats), or lots of saturated fats, like palm-kernel oil. Your best bet may just be to find some good peanuts and make your own (sweetener optional).
