Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is a great favourite with adults and children alike. Spread it on bread and top it with a smear of yeast extract or something sweet, like mashed banana. For the all-American snack, top it with cream cheese or a good preserve. You can also mix it into salad dressings in a similar way to tahini.
