User Topic: Kirkland all natural peanut butter

So...... I made a mistake. I was at Costco with my friend, and I bought two enormous jars of all natural peanut butter. The ingredient list is literally just "peanuts."

I can't eat it. The stuff tastes a bit like dirt. It's gritty (supposed to be "smooth", not "chunky"). And it makes me feel like I could drink a gallon of water, because it sticks like crazy to my mouth.

Now, I definitely don't need to be eating a cup of peanut butter every day or anything, but even on a sandwich, I find myself kind of gagging over this stuff. And I have about 75 ounces left.

I may have mixed a few teaspoons with powdered sugar and mini chocolate chips last night and that was pretty delicious. But I don't feel like I can do that with the whole jar(s) and not gain like a thousand pounds.

Is there any way to salvage this?

I mix greek yogurt, honey and all natural peanut butter (maybe a drop of vanilla and some cinnamon) to make a fruit dip.

Also, could make some homemade granola bars with it!

I make a "home made candy bar" where I mix peanut butter, melted chocolate chips and a little powdered sugar, then mix in a small box of Cheerios and press into a 9x12 glass pan lined with wax paper.

What about mixing the peanut butter with the jelly before you put it on bread like they did in the school cafeterias when I was growing up? If your jelly has enough sweet and you find the right ratio it might fix the gritty and the lack of sweet.

Give it to someone who likes to birdwatch. They'll know what to do with it.

An excellent choice.

They also carry two different brands of Nero d'Avola you might like.

I have seen smoothie recipes that include a spoonful of peanut butter. Or, make peanut butter cookies/bars.

Costco will take it back. Full refund.

Peanut butter requires salt to be palatable, IMO.

Normally I find Costco products to be excellent and although the Kirkland brand has a dorky name, I buy a lot of it.

Also, what Nature Girl said. Peanut butter and birdseed is a great mix for attracting birds like flickers, woodpeckers, and other insectivores. I pack it in between the "petals" of pinecones and hang it in trees like a suet cake.

Another vote for birds! Love the pinecone idea.

Where you are though, it might be impractical to be setting food out along the ground b/c it will attract rats, so if there's no way to have an actual raised off the ground bird feeder, maybe buy a loaf of bread, pick a day, and go to a nearby park and have at it. Happy birds and squirrels! (I gave up on the battle to only feed birds and not squirrels. In my last home, I fed them both equally )

Mix it with soy sauce, lemon juice and grated ginger, use a fork, it takes a while then add some water. Have it with noodles and whatever else you like.

Costco will take it back. You just have to say "it tastes awful".

Then buy Jiffy!

I too don't like natural peanut butter. It separates, it's very dry....not appetizing at all.

Or, try it in peanut butter cookies, might be fine there.

Jif Natural is AH-MAZING! Take it back to Costco and go with Jif It's more pricey, but so worth it!

I just made some cookie bars to use up a jar of natural peanut butter.
1/4 c butter
1/2 c white sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
2 mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c peanut butter
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 c oatmeal

Cream butter and sugar. Add banana and vanilla mix well. Add peanut butter mix well. Stir in oatmeal and baking soda. Pour into greased square pan and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Amazing and easily adapts to gluten free if needed.

In our home we prefer Adams No-Stir peanut butter over Jif. Much to my shock.

I have tried to use peanut butter that I didn't like in other recipes (like the excellent peanut noodles one above, or PB cookies). All that happened was I didn't like the finished dish. Couldn't eat it. If an ingredient makes me sick to taste/smell, then I just can't use the darn thing & chuck it rather than waste my time cooking with it.

Bringing it back is tempting, but the work that it would take to find time when bff (who has the costco membership, not me) and I both have time, during their open hours (close at 6pm??? wtf costco!) would be more trouble than it's worth.

Maybe I'll donate the unopened jar (it was a 2pack) to a food pantry or something, and salvage the rest using some of the ideas below.

Thanks guys, SI is great!

Seconding the Adams PB.

I may have mixed a few teaspoons with powdered sugar and mini chocolate chips last night and that was pretty delicious

I love how you put this. "There allegedly was some goofing with the peanut butter last night. I can neither confirm nor deny."

Seriously, I keep opening the jar thinking, "OOOh! delicious peanut butter!" and every time I'm like "BLECH!"

...so yes, I tried improving it.
