  • Natural peanut butter, runny sauce.

    About 6 months ago, running out of food in the apartment, I did an allrecipes.com search using, I don't remember..."peanut butter" and "soy sauce." It gave me this recipe for peanut butter noodles. Normally, we prefer "natural" peanut butter, but I had some Skippy-like substance around and used it in case the recipe turned out to suck.

    Well, the recipe definitely does not suck. It's become a big favorite in our house.

    But here's the thing: although the sauce tastes much better with natural peanut butter, the consistency is so much thicker and and creamier with the more processed variety. Is this because of the extra goop they add to keep it from separating? And does anyone have any suggestions about how to keep the natural peanut butter but ditch the soupy consistency?

    Thanks much!

    You could try throwing some cornstarch in with the sauce ingredients. That might work as a binder.

      Mmm that does sound yummy.

      You could try adding a small tsp of cornflour with some water to help the sauce stick together and be better combined. If you mix it with water, it stops lumps forming in the sauce.

        When we buy natural peanut butter we put it in the blender with lesithen (sp?) so it doesn't seperate. you could try this, or you could put the amount you need for the recipe into the blender to mix very well.
