“Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.”
Charlie Brown

"Ants on a Log" made with homemade Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter (inspired by The Peanut Butter Company’s cookbook).

Making peanut butter for me has dated back to that illustrious day in 659A Somerville Ave, with a food processor, ton of peanuts and a best friend named Bradford.

This batch, with a bit of a hand from Melissa and her tastebuds came out really well.

Here’s the peanut butter recipe for anyone interested in trying it out:

=============================

Yields: 1 cup of smooth peanut butter

Ingredients:
* 2 cups of unsalted dry roasted peanuts
* 1 teaspoon of peanut oil
* pinch of finely ground sea salt

Preparation:
* Place the peanuts in a food processor and pulse until the peanuts form a paste. Add half of the oil and continue pulsing for another minute. Continue to add oil and pulse the food processor until the peanut butter is smooth enough for your personal taste.

* Transfer the peanut butter to a bowl add half of the salt and stir the peanut butter well. Take a taste and add more salt if necessary.

* Store the peanut butter in a covered glass or plastic container in a cool, dry place.

You also try these add-ons to the recipe above:

Crunchy peanut butter: Follow the recipe above, but grind just 1 and 1/2 cup of the initial peanuts. Chop the reserved 1/2 cup and mix it in after you’ve ground the rest of the peanut butter.

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter: To 1 cup of smooth peanut butter (see above) add 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 raisins. Taste and add more sugar/cinnamon as needed.

OraMedica International Takes a Bite Out of Gum Disease with Oral Health Booklets for Employees



Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) January 19, 2007

Easy-to-read informative booklets that explain gum disease and the connections to an individual’s general health are now available for companies to offer employees as part of their health and wellness initiatives.

“Take a Holistic BITE Out of Gum Disease” includes tips to recognize signs of the disease, treatment options, and how consumers can help reduce risk factors for heart attacks, stroke, diabetes, pneumonia, and pre-term births — conditions that represent a large percentage of what companies spend on employee’s health care.

Created by two health-conscious dentists, the “goal was to produce entertaining yet strong, clear holistic dental health tips that could improve health and save on healthcare utilization and dental and medical expenditures,” says Dr. Andrea Brockman, President of OraMedica International, LLC.

OraMedica’s founders developed and designed the series of oral health tips booklets, based on their 25 years in dental practice treating medically compromised patients and teaching dental health and wellness to people with chronic health problems.

“We thoroughly evaluated each tip for overall appeal, comprehension, appropriateness and health supportiveness,” said Dr. Vincent DiLorenzo, CEO of OraMedica International, LLC.

A whitepaper, “Reining in Healthcare Costs: A Dental Advocacy Approach” provides employers with information on how dental booklets are an easy, effective, and economical way to contain healthcare costs and improve employee productivity. The paper can be downloaded at http://www.oramedica.com/whitepapers.html
