When I think fall, I often think of nuts.  All different kinds of nuts:  acorns, chestnuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds and peanuts.

It was one of those days.  A sunny autmn day in October with the late afternoon sun streaming in through the windows, when after work and school the kids settled into shelling peanuts.  They don’t have to be shelled by hand, but that is part of the fun.

that adding only two tablespoons of oil to two cups of peanuts and a wee bit of salt,

would make it into the creamy stuff that they love to eat.  Completely natural, no additives or preservatives.
