Move over Jif. Mom has a new peanut butter. Fresh ground peanuts. Just like a soft-serve ice cream machine, it's as easy as flippng a switch and filling the cup. These machines are new to the Dining Hall at NCSU and are also at Whole Foods. I simply could not believe the taste. Really, you should try it.
Fall is the season for peanuts. Whether roasted, boiled, or ground into peanut butter, peanuts are loaded with antioxidants and monounsaturated fats (the good fats), which protect against heart disease. According to my source, "100 Best Health Foods", peanuts also have amino acids to boost mood and brain function. No wonder peanut butter is one of my "feel good" foods.
