    As to where to store Peanut butter sorry Guys I used to work at the Health Products and Food Branch of Health Canada (Canada’s dept of Health) and I posed this question to our local food safety and epidiemiologist types.

    And the answer is Peanut butter should only be stored above room temperature for no more than a few days. So PUT IT IN THE FRIDGE.

    When you work in the Frozen North what do you expect. 😉

    Judi,

    Chunky peanut butter has its moments.

    Bill,
    Sure, the peanut butter goes rancid after a few days in the cabinet. But it’s sure a lot easier to spread.

    I Like most of everything but for some reason I don’t like ketchup on Fries.

    Unless it is unopenned then it will store for a few months on the shelf.

    Keep in mind like all mass produced foods this stuff has already been in storage for about a year, including eggs – fresh eggs can be a year old, however they are kept in cold storage.

    I love tomatoes — fresh, organic tomatoes. I snack on them all the time.

    But I hate tomato sauces. They are too un-tomatoey for me. Too sugary. Too gross. I hate spaghetti and I despise ketchup.

    I like tomato soup.

    Ha! And here, I always thought I was crazy… I’m going with Sarah – tomatoes alone are too tart or something. I’ve noticed I can eat slices of it, like on a burger, and like it – but take a bite? No way.

    Meanwhile, I love tomato sauces, like ketchup… but not so into tomato soup. Too “tomato”-ie.

    I like all of the aforementioned items. And I certainly remember the lesson our former president taught us, ketchup is a vegetable.

    Tomatoes are slimy. And the ones from the grocery store don’t even taste like real tomatoes, which makes the sliminess even more unforgivable.

    I’ll gleefully put up with a messy sun-ripened tomato in season, but in the off-season, I prefer my tomatoes pureed and heavily salted and sugared.

    I hate ketchup. BLECH.

    I don’t like raw tomatoes because I find them too tart. They make my mouth pucker.

    But ketchup, tomato sauce, etc have sugar and other flavors added.

    The funny thing is that I find tomato PASTE to be OK, and that’s really just tomatoes, right? I don’t know, maybe when it’s concentrated like that, the sweetness comes out.

    I am there with Bornfool. I love all things tomato, but don’t particularly care for tomatos. Every now and again I will leave one on my In & Out burger.

    I’m one of those people who love ketchup, tomato sauce, etc. but don’t like tomatos. I don’t understand it either.
