What Peanut Butter To Use?
When it comes to making the perfect Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce, the type of peanut butter you use is crucial. I highly recommend using a natural peanut butter with only two ingredients: peanuts and salt. This will give the best texture and flavor for the sauce. The natural peanut butter with only peanuts and salt will give a more authentic taste and will not overpower the other flavors in the sauce.
If you’re looking to have more control over the sweetness, you can use an unsalted and unsweetened peanut butter. This will give you the opportunity to add your preferred level of sweetness to the sauce. However, be aware that unsweetened peanut butter may have a slightly more grainy texture.
Another option is to use creamy or chunky peanut butter, depending on your personal preference. But keep in mind that the texture of the sauce will be affected accordingly.
