Top 10 Unusual Uses For Peanut Butter

Jamie Frater . . . Comments

Peanut butter is for some, food of the gods. It can be eaten with chocolate, it can be eaten with jam, it can be smeared on chicken, and it can even be used in drinks! It seems that the uses for the wonderful stuff are endless. So, in order to prove that that really is the case, I have put together this list of 10 uses for peanut butter that you probably don’t know. Hopefully there should be at least one or two tips here that everyone will benefit from. If you know of other great peanut butter uses, be sure to tell us in the comments.

10

Lube It Up

2394301013 8398Dcccaa.Jpg

Peanut butter is an excellent lubricator. If your lawnmower blades are getting a little tight and rusty – smear on some of the spread and voila – perfect lubrication. This hint is particularly useful because almost every time I need lube, I don’t have any around – but I always have a jar of peanut butter in the cupboard. It can be used for virtually all your lubrication needs.

Animal Medicine

294930900 6379Cadd11.Jpg

If you own a cat or a dog, you will know how hard it can be to get them to take their medication – especially when it is in pill form. Fortunately cats and dogs love peanut butter – so next time you have to give them some medication, mix it up with a spoonful and feed it to them. No more struggling with the animal as you hold its mouth open and try to force feed it a bitter pill.


8

Butter Replacement

Butter1.Jpg

Most recipes that use butter can be cooked with peanut butter instead. In cookies and cakes this can make a wonderful and subtle taste difference. Next time you are making fudge brownies, try using peanut butter instead – it will be like eating a huge Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. You can also stir peanut butter into a sauce instead of butter to give it a nutty finish.

7

Mousetrap Bait

6A00D8341C337553Ef00E55229Da848834-800Wi.Jpg

Mice are not particularly fond of cheese – so it is strange that it is the first food people go for when they are baiting their mousetraps. What most people don’t know is that mice prefer peanut butter – how this has been proven I do not know, but the fact that peanut butter is so much cheaper than cheese, makes this tip a very handy and frugal one. So next time you need to bait a mouse trap, don’t bother loading it with camembert or 5 year aged cheddar, stick on some trusty peanut butter.

6

Price Tag Removal

Picture 002.Jpg

Despite the major advances in science in recent years, no one seems to have managed to invent a label that can be removed easily without leaving any glue behind. Fortunately, we have peanut butter. Rub some of the tasty spread on the label glue and rub with a cloth – it works brilliantly.

5

De-fish the house

Fish In Frying Pan.Jpg

If you have ever fried fish, you will know that it leaves behind a rather unpleasant fishy smell in the house. To help eradicate the smell, take a tablespoon of peanut butter after you have finished frying the fish, drop it in the frying pan and fry it off for a minute or two. The smell of peanut butter is the house is much more enjoyable than stale fish and oil.


4

Leather Cleaner

Plantation Sofa.Jpg

Peanut butter is an excellent cleaner for leather furniture. Just rub a small amount on and work it in in a circular motion. Remove with a buffing cloth and there you have it! The caveat to this tip is peanut-butter smelling furniture. To avoid that you might want to mix a little perfume oil in it – but not too much. Also, if you do add the perfume, make sure you don’t mix up your jars or you will end up with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that tastes like mouth wash.

3

Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanutbiscuit.Jpg

This one doesn’t seem quite so weird, but it is included because these cookies use peanut butter as the main ingredient – there is no flour at all. The cookies are a mix of peanut butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla. You can even throw in a handful of chocolate chips if you wish. The resulting cookies are amazingly tasty and it only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish. You can read the full recipe here, which is also the source of the image above. The site is my sister’s, so check out the other articles too!


2

Gum Remover

Gumhair3 L.Jpg

While it doesn’t happen quite so often to us adults, children often end up with gum in their hair. This would normally be followed up by a lot of tugging and pulling with a comb to remove it, and the eventual chopping of the locks. But what most people don’t realize, is that peanut butter is a perfect “gum remover” – not only will it remove gum from hair, but it will remove it from carpet and any other object that is tainted with the chewy stuff. Just rub some peanut butter into the gum and you can wipe the whole mess off with a cloth.

1

Shave With It

Shaving Face.Jpg

Believe it or not, peanut butter makes a great shaving gel. Just apply it like you would apply the gel, and shave as normal. It works just as well and anyone that has bought a container of shaving gel will know, it is a hell of a lot cheaper. The end result is a very smooth shave and, as a bonus, the oils in the peanut butter are very good for your skin, so you don’t need to spend even more money on moisturizer for your legs or face. You might want to remember to use smooth peanut butter though – the chunky stuff doesn’t work quite as well. If you want to see this in action, a rather foul-mouthed girl has made a youtube clip of herself shaving her legs. You can view it here – but be warned – there is plenty of obscene language so it isn’t safe for work.

    BUT, I JUST DON'T LIKE THE TASTE–NEVER HAVE, NEVER WILL.

    • tbennett009

      I know, NASTY!

    • Tasty

      Should try the salt-free stuff… Tastes much better!

  • Schizotypical

    WARNING:

    Do NOT feed your dog or cat peanut butter!!! It is very easy for them to asphyxiate on it. Do they think it's good? Of course! But dogs also think chocolate is good too, that is until the chocolate liqueur gets into their bloodstream.

    It might be best to prevent a terrible ending all together just by never feeding peanut butter to them. Cheese balls work great if you need to feed your pet medication.

    • ActuallySmart

      Hey dumbass, explain why there are so many peanut butter dog treats and why kong and other companies advise to but peanut butter in their toys as a treat, and chocolate does not have liquor in it, animals cant take chocolate because their body cant process theobromine (the molecule that causes sugar rush in chocolate) as fast as humans and so it causes them to die of cardiac arrest. Peanut butter cant do anything to your dog except make him fat which is why it's a "treat" (search dictionary for 'moderation'). I hate it when people who belive the peanut butter myth. Get your facts straight!

      • Peanutbutter

        I know that cats (not sure about dogs) can’t move their mouths from side to side, only up and down. So they have a VERY hard time eating peanut butter or sticky stuff like caramel. I doubt animals like peanut butter itself but love the taste. The treats aren’t real peanut butter from a jar now are they?

    • kiki

      cheese isn't good for animals either, and cats generally don't like it, or peanut butter for that matter

    • MJB

      In small amounts, such as covering a pill, it's perfectly safe. Giving your pet a huge spoonful or a whole jar is what is dangerous.

      But rats/mice/hamsters are a whole other story. Don't ever give them peanutbutter. They will choke on the smallest amounts. My sister killed her hamster that way, and I never give my rats any peanutbutter because of it.

    These are fantastic tips. Thank you. Regarding the mouse trap: MIT published a study in 1997 proving that over 83% of scientists actually just hate mice. I find it unsurprising those sick bastards discovered this extra use for peanut butter.

  • Hilmi Muzzy

    Uses of peanut butter ? this site keeps getting better and better by the minute.

    Owh and btw, who thinks of this whacky list anyway ?

  • Redcaboose

    Nice list, JFrater. I am guessing that it is the oil in the peanut butter that makes these uses possible. I love peanut butter, and eat some everyday.

  • TonyDee

    Peanut butter on one slice, plum jam on the other slice of white bread, slapped togather, and strong white tea (actually black tea with heaps of white sugar and low fat milk – not skim-milk(yuk)).

    YUM! (the only way to have sandwiches)

  • Biscuit

    Peanut butter toasties. yum!

    We could have used peanut butter on my sister. We had to cut off 6″ of hair. Great tip.

  • Caz

    Pity the stuff doesn’t taste better.

  • Frank

    Good for emergencies… but then again most of these tips are true for pretty much anything oily you happen to have in the house. Personally I avoid peanut butter, I don’t like the taste, smell or texture.

  • sharlu

    tehehehe lubrication needs :P . . cool list! I like it :D

  • astraya

    Did Confucius say anything about peanut butter?

    I had/(still have somewhere in a cardboard box in Australia) my mother’s recipe for a confection using peanut butter, honey, rice bubbles, sultanas and coconut – press into a cake tin, chill overnight and cut into squares. I thought of a variation and rolled the mix into small balls. I’ve made this to take to choir suppers on occasion. On one occasion one of the choristers complained about the size of my balls. The next week I was telling another chorister about this when anothernother chorister said “And how did she know about the size of your balls?”. I said “She’d just been nibbling on one!”.

    “We could have used peanut butter on my sister.”
    I immediately thought “We could have spread (used-peanut-butter) on my sister”.

    • kiki

      what are rice bubbles?

      • Girlflash

        Rice Krispies or puffed rice cereal

  • astraya

    DC comment 8: ‘It can be used for virtually all your lubrication needs.’

    That “virtually” makes a helluva difference.

  • smurff

    Peanut butter mixed with ice cream and syrup makes a nice dessert.

    Nice list again thanks.

  • flibbertigibbet

    I’ll forget about peanut butter for months- nay- years on end. Now we have a couple tubs in the cupboard (I prefer chunky, the other half prefers smooth). While none of these tips solve any problems I have right now (unless there’s a bonus tip for paying bills with peanut butter…), it has reminded me of a childhood favorite: Peanut Butter Pickle Sandwiches. Prepared exactly as it sounds. I still haven’t heard of anyone else eating them, but my mum used to make them, and I think they’re lovely. Now I know what’s for lunch tomorrow, and I thank you for that.

  • joanne

    please correct me if i’m wrong, but #’s 10 and 2 seem to contradict #’s 6 and 4 – in #10 and 2 peanut butter (mostly a mixture of oils and microscopic peanut particles) supposedly acts as a lubricant while in 6 and 4 it serves as abrasive.

  • Cazza

    Joanne – its proberly smooth peanut butter as a lubricant and crunchy as an abrasive.

  • thirtytwo

    Peanut butter is the worst thing ever invented. Fact.

  • Manon

    it’s funny, you accept that cats and dogs love peanut butter but question how they discovered that mice like it? Well they likely put peanut butter in front of the mice and they liked it…science at work

  • archangel

    Wow, amazing list. Makes me want to eat some peanut butter… yummmm.

  • ramz

    all those are great but peanut butter is best for eating with jelly!!

  • Cazza

    I’ve never liked peanut butter and jam/jelly. Doesn’t taste right.

    It’s better by itself!

  • MadMonkey

    You can also spread it on your (insert anything) and have your (insert anything) lick it off.

    • ActuallySmart

      You can also spread it on your "lampshade" and have your "luxury spray cheeze" lick it off.

      I guess it's not insert "anything" anymore.

      Fail.

    bread, tongue

  • Peachy

    11. A good tablespoon full will give you five minutes of peace when stuck with a chatty kid.

    Might want to add a warning about allergies, though. Peanut allergy can be really serious and people who are allergic don’t even necessarily have to eat it. A few grams is a enough to kick off an anaphylactic reaction.

  • I love peanut butter and nutella spread on rice cakes. This has been a favorite lunch of mine for decades.

  • I’m just glad I don’t suffer from Arachibutyrophobia! That would take away one of my favorite food groups! Imagine no Thai peanut sauce! No peanut cookies! No peanut and nutella rice cakes! No peanut and vanilla muffins!
    I get the chills just thinking about it!

  • astraya

    I could never figure out American references to “peanut butter and jelly” until someone explained that jelly=jam.

    • kiki

      jelly is made using only the juice of the berry, whereas jam uses the whole fruit

  • astraya

    Fear of spiders in butter, or am I missing something?

  • Cheeshygirl

    I’ve actually used peanut butter to get gum out of my daughter’s hair and it worked beautifully.

    I think those cookies might be a good way to break in my new kitchen next weekend. And make my house smell nummy!

    I’m not going to comment on the lube tip. Some things are best unsaid.

    Great list Jamie!

  • chaosinc

    Peanut butter and marshmallow cream on wheat toast. Mmmmm!

  • jim miller

    Here’s a recipe for a great peanut butter drink,called a Torito:

    One can of evaporated milk
    One can of condensed milk
    As much peanut butter as you want
    As much rum as you want
    Add some ice
    Put the whole mess in a very strong blender and let it run til fully mixed.

    If you wish, Reese’s Pieces can be added to put some chocolate flavor in.

  • ronsantohof

    I used to but peanut butter in my dog’s chew bones. It really helps with a dogs separation anxiety. The peanut butter did not seem to have an adverse effect on her health. I have no idea why peanut butter would be bad for a dog.

    • ActuallySmart

      It isn't bad, thats a myth.

    • kiki

      sometimes when a child or animal is eating peanut butter (like from a spoon, not in a sandwitch or whatever) it can block airways and cause asphyxiation. or so it is said, i have never witnessed it myself, but i think i saw it on oprah

    please, dont encourage people to feed it to cats and dogs. their metabolism does not digest nuts as well as ours, they can easily suffocate on it, and dogs and cats have allergies just like humans do.

  • bucslim

    Kind of worried about what bulldada does with his/her free time.

    Anyhoo, I want to thank Jamie for bringing back some really shitty memories of my childhood. Ya see people, I hate peanut butter. My two older brothers knew this and they would torture me with that fact. They would make their PB-N-J’s by putting the knife in the PB first, and THEN put the soiled knife into the glorious J, thereby contaminating the entire bottle of J. So when I would make my own toast with a little bit of J, I would spread it on unknowingly with remnants of PB and sometimes would eat it, not knowing I was putting a detestable substance in my mouth. I would discover it too late and then head to the bathroom where I would make an offering to the porcelain god. Most of the time I would have to check the jar for brown bits of this crap before I ate it. And most of the time I would have to pass on the J. Those bastards would laugh right in my face.

    So now I live my life with one simple rule, if it looks like poop, smells like poop, tastes like poop and feels like poop, then it’s POOP, and I don’t put it in my mouth, shave with it, lube with it or put it on my balls to amuse myself with pets.

  • MeepTheSheep

    Peanut butter is also helping malnourishment in children – it can help a near starved child back to health as part of a concoction known as Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food. Besides it’s nutritional benefits, it’s also easy to digest even on a starved stomach and it’s very cheap.

    7. Schizotypical, 37. ronsantohof
    It’s alright in moderation, particularly if it’s used as a flavor enhancer rather than a meal so they don’t lick up more than they can handle. Cheese is also an iffy choice since many dogs and cats are lactose intolerant but useable if in small amounts.

    If it’s possible with the medicine, the easiest way to administer it is to ground it up into their food. I had one foster dog that was allergic to practically everything. She was prescribed baby benedryl twice a day, which was mixed in her special diet food (no beef, no chicken, no egg, no treats mainly because of any and all food dyes, etc.) in addition to a series of other pills I had to feed by hand.. :-\ .

    The actual big controversy (at least for dogs) is bones. Some say don’t cook bones, they will splinter; Some say cook bones to prevent salmonella poisoning.

  • Viktobi

    PEANUT BUTTER MOST DEFINITLY DOES NOT SMELL LIKE POOP!

    if it taste like poop…that’s a diff story…cuz i don’t have the slightest clue…

  • Klingon

    Very nice list! Peanut Butter has so many uses.

  • General Tits Von Chodehoffen

    For number 10 there is one situation I can think of where you would not want to use it as lube. And I doubt it works for number 2.

  • jimbob

    @jajdude, Hilarious. I agree.

  • Bunbunbunbun

    Before anybody goes out and tries it… Personal lubricant is NOT one of the “lubrication needs” that can be fullfilled with peanut butter, especially if you are of the female persuasion. That is a yeast infection just WAITING to happen, my friend.

    On another note, I’d really like to try shaving my legs with peanut butter now… But wouldn’t it clog the razor and/or the drain? Even if it was smooth peanut butter, I can’t see it washing out of the blades that easy. Oh, and in the summer? I just imagine bugs and mosquitos swarming my legs. And dogs licking them like crazy… I once made a bath soak with some lemon juice and honey, and my friend’s dog wouldn’t stop licking my legs.

    Nice and light list for a Sunday. Perfect.
    Peanut butter and lettuce sandwiches are awesome.
    As far as the pet thing goes we’ve always used cheeze whiz in lieu of peanut butter. There’s not much milk in processed cheese food, so no problem with lactose intolerance. I have seen the tiny dab of peanut butter on the nose trick – the dog’s reaction was hilarious. And he loved it. Maybe dogs are like people? some peanut sensitive some not.

    Hah, first time commenting here. I loved this list – It enlightened me on the godly substance that humans call “Peanut Butter.” I totally have to try some of these, although replacing butter with PB… that could be kinda weird in some recipes.

    I didn’t know if there were real, or you were just pulling our legs. Some of these sound a bit far fetched, but having googled it, I see where you got your ideas.

    BTW, JFrater, I would have laughed my socks off if you had been the guy in the last picture, shaving with peanut butter!!!

  • Jael

    Do you think peanut butter will get rid of stickers from a car bumper? I have a friend who has an Obama bumper sticker on his car and he wants to get rid of it… he is dating a girl who is a staunch Republican.

  • deepthinker

    too bad so many people in the US are getting salmonella poisoning from peanuts… I haven’t eaten peanut butter in months, and I miss it.. someone let me know when the coast is clear. I can’t eat pancakes without peanut butter on them. yummy.

  • yummy-taquitos

    All those are great. except when half the people you know are allergic to peanuts and even the smell will kill them!

  • lo

    83. Jael-

    uhm, if he can’t be honest to the girl about their political differences they should break up, i don’t care how hot she is.

    but if peanut butter won’t remove the sticker there’s always a rag with lighter fluid (the type for barbecuing) or he can purchase some “GooGone.”

  • DDRM

    WARNING… A little life lesson – i learned the hard way:

  • lo

    86. deepthinker-

    seriously! i rarely eat peanut products, but having them in the news constantly makes me think of them, which makes me want some -precisely when it’s not safe to eat them! it’s extremely frustrating (but the peanut processing places the outbreak has been traced to have been incredibly gross, so i focus on that to quell my desire to go buy peanut butter just now.)

  • deepthinker

    90. lo-

    It’s funny how we desire the forbidden. Haha! Maybe it’s the salmonella we crave!

  • MichaelGreen

    That isn’t all peanut butter is used for!

  • N_Star

    Regarding #6 — the price tag removal — it sounds messy and weird. You wrote that there weren’t any good ways to remove them but I have always used a hair dryer on it for about 10-15 mins to dry out the adhesive and it peels right off. Super clean and fast.

  • gabi319

    From the FDA site:
    Major national brands of jarred peanut butter found in grocery stores have not been among the products recalled.
    …suspended plant at Plainview, TX…Blakely, GA…

    If you read the label and avoid those areas, you’re in the clear. But I know that fear! When the e. coli in spinach thing happened and I got sick (actually from tainted seafood and not from my spinach obsession) it took weeks long after the scare blew over before I ventured to that part of the produce section.

    Ok, I used to run a Veterinary Emergency clinic and we would always recomend that if the dog had a problem taking their meds, litely coat it in peanut butter or cheese. Unless you put an entire cup of peanut butter on it they are not going to choke on it.

    Try this:

    Next time you have a nice garlicky dinner, Italian or Chinese or whatever, eat a nice big spoonful of peanut butter afterwards. It will totally neutralize that garlic breath.

    Unfortunately the girl in the video is not actually shaving. I thought the “razor” she was using looking familiar and sure enough later on you can just make out “Veet” written on the top.

    Veet doesn’t make razors but they do make their “blade-less” razor product known as Rasera. I’ve use it before. It’s basically a hair removal creme you smooth over your legs, wait a few minutes and then you use the bladeless razor (basically plastic fins on a razor looking tool) to sweep up the removal creme and hair.

    The Raseras are apparently now purple instead of pink but it looks the same and you can find it on veet.com site or throw Rasera in Google images and find many different coloured examples of this “razor”.

    “In the UK “Jelly” = “Jello” (Gelatin). Ok, got it.

    “yes, in the US “jam” is a whole fruit preserve spread, while “jelly” is a fruit preserve spread made only from the clear, strained fruit juice””

    In the U.K. we use also use jam in the sense you provide there.

    I think fruit conserve, another term, applies where great big chunks of fruit such as half peaches or apricots are involved in high density. I remember my parents used to buy that in big tins originating from Australia. Yummy.

    Jelly we use in both your senses. I’ve never had any trouble knowing which, given the context. Children’s parties and the like wouldn’t be the same without gelatine jelly from moulds. Along with weak chicken or beef broth, it’s also an ideal diet for convalescents.

    Jelly as resulting from juice strained through a (non-fundamental!) muslin cloth, or more lazily, a fine sieve, provides delicious pip-free spread toppings such as bramble (blackberry), raspberry, or orange jelly. My mother used to make what I consider to be the queen of them all, rose hip jelly, but what a number to make it! Apart from consisting almost entirely of leathery husk, the hips are full of pips which are packed between the most irritating of hairs. One or two of those in your mouth and you’d know about it for hours after. So the preparatory ‘stew’ was hung up in a muslin bag over the kichen table and would drip, drip, drip like Chinese water torture for four three or five days on end into a large bowl before finally being ready to continue to the bottling stage in jars.

    However, I’d swap a hundred or more jars of peanut butter for just one of that ‘royal’ jelly!

    lo, (131) & Senor Shutter, (130),

    “… i think with meat and gravy they’d have (yorkshire) puddings?”

    Spot on. Strictly speaking Y.P.s are for roast beef only. Suet dumplings may be added to stews and the like. Normally what would accompany any other meats would be some form of potato, rice, pasta or perhaps bread rolls, rarely in combination.

    Cookies (like ‘chips’ for what we call ‘crisps’) is not a term you’ll find in the U.K., except on U.S. imports in supermarkets and the like. Essentially we have generic water biscuits (savoury or neutral) or generic (sweet) biscuits. The term buscuits alone would almost certainly either imply both or sweet biscuits alone. Both savoury and sweet biscuits are frequently defined by their descriptive type: cheese biscuits, sesame biscuits, chocolate biscuits, ginger biscuits, chocolate chip biscuits. Their variety is teen and legion. Garibaldis, maries, lincolns and bourbons, etc. would be understood without need for the word ‘biscuit’. Biscuits are essentially flat and more or less crisp-baked. Anything softer or of pastry is likely to be a cake or a tart.

  • Anon

    Since you asked.

  • lo

    senor shutter & anon-

    i think the form of “biscuit” that is a child of the american south lacks a true british equivalent, as it was created in the states. wiki says a “soda bread” or savory scone would be closest, but not the same. and of course UK savory & water biscuits are “crackers” in the US.

  • Anon

    lo & Senor Shutter,

    Of course, and (cream) crackers or bath olivers with us as well. The subject is so wide and complicated!

    I’d forgotten scones with their soda basis too, but they tend to get lumped more with buns and the like in the bread zone for us.

    “So in a UK McDonald’s a Bacon, Egg and cheese biscuit is a Bacon, Egg and Cheese Yorkshire pudding?”

    Essentially MacDonalds is A U.S. economic expansion, in this case into the U.K. In the same way that soccer is a global sporting import into the U.S.: so that you use its traditional names for the positions, not those of gridiron! In economics, the main aim is to sell. Products and terms must be understood and acceptable to the locals. If you travel the world, you’ll find an uneasy alliance in MacDaonalds between local terminology and tastes and Macdonalds U.S. roots. That applies to where I now live, South America. Returning to the U.K. To begin with, I did point out that Y.p. is eaten specifically with beef. Bacon comes from pigs. We ourselves are hardly MacDonalds fans. However, I can tell you that they know they can get away with ‘French fries’ in Britain for what we traditionally call ‘chips’ (as in fish ‘n’ chips, our national takeaway). ‘Biscuit’ in your sense would go down like a lead airship (pace Jimmy Page). If not served with their French fries, most items are sandwiched between a soft sesame bun (which I find a lot less to my taste even than PB) and are called a Something-or-other Mac. In this case it might well be a ‘Brekkie Mac’, for all I know.

    No. it is a bacon egg and cheese mcmuffin. A yorkshire pudding is nothing like the american biscuit.

  • lo

    142. senor shutter-

    a yorkshire pudding is nearly identical to what americans call a pop-over or (non-sweet) “puffy pancake.” as cymraegbachgen87 says, nothing like a american biscuit (be they dropped, rolled, or beaten biscuits, yum for all!).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yorkshire_pudding

    i gave an “equivalent” of american chicken and biscuits = UK sunday roast (beef) and yorkshire puddings, not because the dishes are anything alike, but because they’re examples of meals with a similar social tradition and protein/carb combo.

    if you went to live in/visit asia, south america, or the UK there would be no such thing as american “chicken and biscuits” -unless you’re in a city with a KFC branch…..just like you’d only have to worry about naming “breakfast sandwiches” at mcdonald’s.

    Having just learned all of those wonderful elements, I decided to put them to use, and changed the phrase to “going over like a plumbum zeppelin.” My classmates started to use it too. I’m not sure Sister Victoria was overly pleased, but she didn’t say anything against it.

    it also works really well on scratched CDs. If you have a CD that no longer works due to scratches, smear some (creamy!) peanut butter over the scratches, rub in a circular motion, and wipe the CD as clean as you can before trying to play the disc again. It works, I swear.

    I don’t think that would work. The problem is that the peanut butter will gum up the razor too quickly and be prohibitively difficult to rinse. The only way I can see it working is by shaving a very small (say, 1″) section at a time, and rinsing with boiling water between each stroke. Not really a viable alternative to traditional lather. It could make a cool experiment, though. Maybe I should write to Mythbusters :)

    AMAZING – I think you stumbled onto something disturbing here. That picture of Goober peanut butter swirled with the jelly (American sense) evokes strange feelings in some people. I work with a girl that has the strangest reaction to the swirled stuff. I mean she cannot look at a jar of it, or even mention it without her closing her eyes and shivering – you know text book nerve tremors people get sometimes. I thought she was joking, so one year I bought a jar for her birthday and wrapped it, the second she opened it and saw, she turned her head away, blind walked to one of the other girls and said “TAKE THIS, GIVE IT TO YOUR KIDS” – weirdarama

    The most useful thing about PB I’ve found is staving off hunger. I found out a long time ago if you’re in a rush, or waiting for dinner, along those lines, a big teaspoon of it can stave off hunger for an hour – very handy.

    I heard of of a use not mentioned here. Back in the Nam days, when I was a kid, they said that guys that got draft notices, before they reported for their physical would smear peanut butter around their…well…never mind

    Bacon, I don’t really like the stuff. To much as a child I guess. If I’m not mistaken rodents have no gall bladder, making VERY difficult to digest the fatty/meaty/crappy stuff. Bacon might kill them.

  • 195. Crimanon:…Bacon might kill them
    ****
    Pardon me, but as to mice and rats in one’s home, isn’t killing them the entire point?

    haha i had to use the peanut butter gum removal technique so many times when i was younger coz my little (2 year old at the time) sister used to get into my moms (and anyone elses) gum, chew it and spit it in random places on the floor, and being a child i was always down there…so i always had gum in my hair haha!

  • bigski

    Rats can eat almost anything. Bacon is just a little treat for them.Like us eating a potato chip or peanut butter.

    rats make great pets. very smart. like cats in some ways.
    I had some reservations when I had a roomate a few years ago and we had a mouse problem and he suggested peanut butter. It worked like a charm. we used the stand by neck breaking boards that are fast and quick and leave them twitching with their eyes buldged out and ready to burst…I was given the gift of a pet rat by a girlfriend once and before i knew we were in the pet store that supplied OSU, I believe is the biggest campus in the world..anyway. I was doing this pretty little honey an honor in saving it from multipulte testings. I took care of it, taught it, washed it, played wrestling with it and called it from its lair when it was food time and it would come and crawl up my pant leg and into my hand . it slept and peed on my chest.
    So when it came time with a mouse problem later on and I gave way to the peanut butter, because I saw how my pet escaped and became no longer cute, but a full grown dirty rat,
    it all worked like a charm.

    long story short, we moved over to glue traps with a dab of peanut butter and the mice flocked and the babies too. horrid exterminations followed and the whole history of mankind’s cerebral justifications came into question.
    I believe I commented on a “funny motivation poster list” on this site that showed a bunch of mice getting it all at once

  • Crimanon

    segue: It seemed like he(?) was thinking bait not poison of rodents. If it’s poisonous/toxic wouldn’t the trap be redundant?

    Not for me, I have cats! We’ll see when spring Actually gets here.

    I’ve also had both for pets.

  • diogenes

    and by smart
    I mean as smart as cats are
    which isnt that smart

  • diogenes

    and by cats I dont mean the terribly stupid musical

    and believe it or not, black people have more to be proud of than inventing penut butter

    ok, i’ll quit now, I’m only having a bit of fun

    I had a pet rat that my wife saved from being snake food. Anyway I taught it a few tricks ( this was a white rat not a regular rat ) Not that there`s anything wrong with that. But it learned to jump from the coffee table to the couch and to stand on it`s back feet for food. That`s all the tricks Ratley learned because rats only live 3-5 years and she died before I could teach her another trick.

  • bigski

    Which has nothing to do with Peanut Butter but im just saying.
    Recipe Time- Butter 2 pieces of bread on each side.
    Slice a bannana to fit inside bread.
    Spread peanut butter on the other side of
    buttered bread.
    Fry in a skillet on both sides like grilled
    cheese.
    Enjoy.

    Peanut Butter causes cancer!!!

    All peanuts (and most nut products) contain one of the most carcinogenic substances known, aflatoxin:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aflatoxin

    Stop condoning it’s use in everything, and demand aflatoxin free products, I’m sure they must exist as there’s a patent:

    I’m not sure if this has been said in the comments but;

    I use peanut butter to get scratches off my dvds/cd’s. Wipe it across the scratches, it should fill it in nicely. No more skipping!just wipe the extra off with a wet paper towel~

    For those who didn’t know what jelly was until someone said “jam”. There IS a difference, at least in the US for those that know.
    Jelly is thinner than jam and usually made from preserves instead of the fruit itself.

    Just another interesting thingamadoodle my grandparents taught me, who grew up in the country making their own jam as kids.

    Cernunnos, not sure where you are getting your information but it is safe to give dogs peanut butter, they can digest it and my vet reccommends it especially when trying to give the dog pills that she doesn’t want to swallow,

  • Mr. C

    I think it is great in your lonesome when the mood is right

  • ~sigh~
    I have now developed a full-blown allergy to peanuts…a hassle because I love peanuts in all sorts of food forms, and because they lie hidden in so many foods you don’t known they’re in.
    Worse, even though peanuts are not a true nut, but a legume, the allergy seems to have spread to include hazel nuts, pecans, almonds, all of the nuts one would normally eat.
    Dratted nuts!

  • segue: try dark roasted sesame seeds (purade(sp?), it’s the closest thing to peanut butter that I’ve found that lives in my kitchen. Aside from the actual peanut butter. I can’t seem to find the recipe, but if you watch enough Good Eats the episode will eventually come back around.

    Everytime i Make brownies (whether it be from a box or from scratch) i always add a little bit of peanut butter, it gives it an extra taste then just chocolate. I also add it to premade cookie dough (like chocolate chip cookie dough or even oatmeal raisin) if you mix it thoroughly it gives it an amazingly good aftertaste

  • jo

    Peanut butter plus bananas. Blend together. Makes a delicious shake. You can add nutmeg. Or ice cream or cocoa powder. Yum yum!

  • PastryChef

    I use peanut butter to pick up broken glass out of my garbage disposal when I accidentally drop & break a dish or cup. I disconnect my disposal, slide on somewhat thick rubber gloves, slather on the peanut butter & use it to pick up the small pieces of glass that you don’t want to run through your disposal system.

    The flourless peanut butter cookies are great! I make them all the time when my husband and I can’t afford any nice dessert. 375 degrees…1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 egg…mix it together, ball it up, put the fancy criss-cross design on it…ten minutes in the oven…let cool…and wow! Delicious.

    They put the peanut butter inside a film tube container or something simialr looking, and put it in a pressur container simulating the earth’s pressure and temperature needed to make diamonds and since peanut butter contains a lot of carbon, a diamond is what resulted.

    I have an unusual usage for you, It comes from my family’s long history of being theater nerds, If you mix Peanut butter, Corn Syrup, a little Glycerin (To keep the syrup from crystallizing) And Red food Color, you have a realistic, and very tasty Stage blood. The brown of the peanut butter makes the red dye look more real, and it’s great with bread! (I know this from personal experience Lol)

    Do be careful when giving your pet peanut butter. They can have allergies to peanuts/peanut oils like us. Make sure you know how your pet will react with peanut butter before giving it with meds. Especially if its a new med that they could be reacting to as well.
