AS ANYONE WHO has ever spent an evening eating peanut butter straight from the jar will attest, peanut butter is truly the food of the gods.

Not only is it delicious all on its own, it’s an excellent sandwich filler. It’s also one of the rare foods that successfully straddles the line between being sweet and savoury.

But did you know it’s also incredibly versatile?
