And now this article says that the store brands are just as good for you as the expensive health food ones. So there's no nutrious reason to buy the fresh grind-your-own stuff.

But the commercial brands taste awful. And I just don't understand why the grind-your-own stuff should be expensive -- it should cost the same as a pound of roasted, but unsalted, peanuts. I buy mine, but only a v. little bit at a time 'cause I can't leave it alone, at a health food store in Greenwich Village. I can't remember the exact price, but I always think it's quite inexpensive.

During the winter I buy a large container and mix it with bird seed (first allowing myself a generous teaspoon of the pb) for the birds who over-winter -- it's never struck me as expensive.
