I'm unusually sensitive to salt. If I'm in a car and someone opens a bag of chips I can taste the salt in it. Driving down the road I can taste yesterday's road salt. I've asked other people and they say they don't notice it.
I nearly gagged on the salt in some instant mashed potatoes. Only later did I notice that according to the ingredient list, salt was the #2 ingredient. In instant mashed potatoes. As if I couldn't add my own salt. But I can't take it out. Thanks.
Then there's peanut butter.I started eating Smucker's Natural peanut butter a few years ago. If you like pb try a jar. You'll be shocked. Regular peanut butter tastes like cake frosting to me now.
But Smucker's, of course, adds a wee bit of salt (110mg/serving) to their otherwise natural peanut butter.
So I decided to make my own.
I've been considering the purchase of a food processor for a couple of years and now I had the excuse I needed. The recipe is simple enough for even me to get right. Put the contents of a 16 oz jar of unsalted peanuts in the food processor and turn it on until it turns into peanut butter.
|Nom, nom. And no salt.|
This is one of those things where I'm sure everybody knew about this all along but I'm feeling like I discovered the tenth planet.
But it's still a yay!
