Just because you have a restricted diet, doesn't mean you have a restricted life.
Have you ever tried buying roasted shell-on peanuts? The risk of contamination would be almost zero, no? Of course, you'd probably be spending hours each week de-shelling enough peanuts to make your own peanut butter.
I gagged hearing about that. Leaking into the vat, perhaps...yuck! I am with you, if I want a nut butter, which I seldom do, I will process my own.HUGS
For those without nut allergies, Whole Foods usually has freshly ground nut butters. The contamination of the commercial peanut butter is SO gross!Also, I thought that Elise of Simply Recipe's article about using a mason jar on your blender for various uses, including homemade peanut butter, might be of interest.
-Bo, last time i looked at unshelled peanuts i was with you at TJ's and they said, processed with other nuts. sigh. i'm sure i can find a pure peanut manufacturer, just gotta google. or call the peanut board...-lynn, yuck isn't the half of it--yuckity yuck indeed!-m, great ideas! i had heard that those fresh grinders at WF and elsewhere had some issues though: most often they aren't cleaned properly, people stick their unwashed hands into the vats, *and* the nuts go rancid. sigh. i should put one of the olde tyme machines on my wish list. as well as a kitchen big enough to hold it! ;-) great article about blender/mason jar --thanks.
