One Good Find: Spicy Peanut Butter

Better Off Peanut Butter
Melissa Hahn

Here's a peanut spread that will stop you in your tracks and make you re-think the PB&J as the best use for peanut butter: Better Off Spread's "Asian-inspired" Ace of Spice variety pairs creamy, salty, familiar peanut flavor with the unexpected spicy kick of Sichuan peppercorn, chile pepper, and black sesame seeds. With just the right amount of heat, it's awesome in stir-fry sauces, cold noodle dishes, veggie slaws, marinades, and yes, as sandwich spread—though maybe not with jelly.
