That's funny. I hadn't eaten that for about 20 years, and I, too, started back on them just a few weeks ago. I like mine with chunky.
The kids like the creamy, but I am glad I can overrule them. I like the chunky too.

Just don't try running distance if you supplement magnesium.

Right now I am not addicted to anything, but a year or so ago I loved nu-shelled peanuts late in the afternoon. I also got into peanut butter on celery.
That happens here all the time. For the last few months I've been killing bags of Big Hunks and AbbaZabbas...my mother-in-law drops them off every week...my wife says I can't ask her to stop as it would be rude and underscore what in ingrate I already am...so I pig out on toffee and peanuts...See's peanut brittle is another eat-it-all-in-one-sitting snack.....butter pecan ice cream with sugarfree chocolate syrup and sliced strawberries....mmmmm

A few tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass of water is alleged to do the same thing: I haven't tested it.

I've also got a food dehydrator. I've tried it a few times, but just don't have the patience to perfect the recipes.

Soy sauce, ground ginger, toasted sesame oil, brown sugar, a drop of liquid smoke and garlic. You can't go wrong.

Sounds very Teriyaki-ish.

Thanks, Al. I'll give it a try.

How long do you soak it before you dry it?

Overnight.

I forgot, course ground black pepper. I use that in the marinade and put some on each piece when I lay it out on the dehydrator.

Also go real easy on the liquid smoke a few drops goes a long way.
