Omni, I specifically indicated I felt too strongly about the topic and was getting too emotional so I bowed out of the conversation quite some time ago. Unfortunately the conversation turned ugly and I no longer felt it was worth my time. FWIW I was not the only one getting upset over certain atbreastudes regarding the issue. I find ignoring someone a lot more powerful than answering or arguing and if that doesn't work I have no problem killfiling. I'd rather be discussing food or cooking than arguing :)
BTW, I wish the replier well I and will respond to him ONLY if it is cooking related and something of interest to me. No hard feelings. I just don't feel like arguing. Life is too short.
Obfood - My Homemade Peanut Butter I simply take shelled, unsalted peanuts and blend them smooth in the food processor or blender. I prefer using the food processor as the resulting peanut butter is easier to get out. I transfer the peanut butter to a ziploc container as use as needed.
Obfood 2 - I will go out of my way to avoid preservatives as well as addes salts & sugars. IMO many food allergies are due to these rather than the actual food.
