How to buy: Choose unsalted peanuts for snacking and recipes. Peanut butter should not contain any hydrogenated oils. Look for peanut butter that only contains peanuts and possibly salt. Some grocery stores offer freshly ground peanut butter.
Storage: As peanut butter has a high oil content, store in the refrigerator until sell-by date. Whole peanuts should be kept in an airtight container in a cool dry place.
