Looks like this is a good time to put those peanut butter coupons to good use... or maybe even to purchase a few of those massive Costco containers of peanut butter. As The Happy Housewife shares in a recent post, the price of peanut butter has been rising steadily due to a poor crop this year, and in the coming months it looks like we will see that significant price increase passed on to the consumer. Peanut butter is an inexpensive, vegetarian protein source that can be used in hundreds of different inexpensive recipes, from West African groundnut stew (try it!) to Vietnamese Peanut Sauce for spring rolls. If you use a lot of it, it may be a good idea to stock up.
