Peanut Butter: My Secret Addiction

Peanut butter

I have a confession to make.

I have an addiction to peanut butter.

I like anything with peanut butter in it or on it. I don’t know what it is about the stuff, but I can’t get enough of it.

When SHTF it would be one of the first creature comforts that I would have a craving for and I would pay quite dearly for it.  As trivial as it sounds, I never really gave much thought to a world without peanut butter until I went to a survival expo and was greeted with free samples of peanut butter cookies.

Peanut Butter: My Secret Addiction

I had crammed three of four of the bite-sized morsels into my gullet before I even stopped to think; What do these have to do with survival?

The nice lady behind the counter informed me that they had been made using only powdered ingredients.  I never would have thought of making powdered peanut butter.  I couldn't believe that a cookie that good could come from canned powdered ingredients so I asked if I could sample the peanut butter by itself.

It was dry and gritty, but once it started to rehydrate on my tongue, it turned out to be one of the best-tasting peanut kinds of butter that I have ever had.

I ended up taking home the biggest can of it that she had. Let’s just say that my wife was not too happy with it until I made her a fresh batch of my own peanut butter cookies.

The thought of using powdered peanut butter never crossed my mind and I couldn't have imagined it would taste this good with a shelf life of up to 30 years it has earned a place on the top shelf of my survival food cache.

Have you ever been surprised, good or bad, by a long-term food item?   Leave a comment below.

I am constantly wanting to try new food items and would like some input on what would be good to try.

    You might want to try “Complete Mashed Potatoes”. I normally don’t like instant potatoes because they taste like paste, but these taste pretty good. Just add a little butter. They are also good with sour cream and a little cheddar cheese. I bought a case at Emergency Essentials.

    I’ll bet if you have a health foods store in your area, they might have powdered peanut butter. I seem to remember my mom using powdered peanut butteras well.
