Yo! Gingerbread!

Yo! Gingerbread!
SARATOGA SPRINGS — Finally, we report that the new Winter Farmers’ Market was full of yummy treats, but a supreme pleasure was discovering the newest seasonal offering from the folks at Saratoga Peanut Butter Company. Behold “Catch Me If You Can!” – a spicy gingerbread-like creation that just makes your tongue happy. Ms. Kristen at the peanut butter marketing gallery explains: “You can certainly tell that it is still peanut butter, but it is so much more. Think of it as spreadable gingerbread. We use molasses, crystallized ginger and our own secret blend of spices to create it.” As far as unique applications she recommends, “Catch me is particularly amazing on apple slices or on graham crackers. It can also be folded into someone’s favorite quick bread recipe for a taste unlike anything you’ve ever tried.” This seasonal flavor is somewhat exclusive. It hit shelves on November 1 and should be available through the holidays, but not much longer. Currently, it is only being distributed at three winter farmers’ markets, including the Saratoga Winter Market on Saturdays. Distribution might be expanded, but not much. “We try to keep its release to local shops,” Kristen said. All of which means, catch “Catch Me If You Can!” while you can. Try to say that five times fast, with or without peanut butter in your mouth. Find more mouth-watering legume concoctions at www.yopeanut.com. - Arthur Gonick
