Hello! It's nice to be back.
A couple of days ago a certain Microsoft product (ends in " '95' " ) packed
in all my applications, sending my unit and I to a computer technician.
Having just got it back and functioning, I apologize to those I haven't
spoken to lately by private email. I don't mean to appear rude!
While I yearned for my computer, (Jane knows about an appetite for email) I
got experimenting in the kitchen. I think I might have found a peanut
butter substitute. Because it was my first attempt, and refinements are
necessary, I think it should be called a Beta version. :-)
So here it goes:
Beanut Butter Beta Version
2/3 cup canned chick peas, drained
1 Tbsp corn syrup
2 tsp ff plain yoghurt
1 tsp sugar (I used Nutrasweet) or to taste
8 drops peanut butter flavouring
( I got it at Bulk Barn, where they sell cake and candy supplies. It's an
artificial flavour made by LorAnn Oils Inc. 4518 Aurelius, Lansing, MI
Put ingredients in a processor and blend WELL until creamy. It was just
lovely with jam on matzah, and I look forward to trying it in a real
sandwich next week. (the flavouring is based in a grain alcohol-*really*
not kosher at Pesach.)
This was enough for 2 sandwiches. I think it might be nice with a bit of
icing sugar, as in the real stuff.
Please experiment if you can, and post your suggestions. It would be nice
to have a reasonable and healthy alternative to peanut butter!
