No, according to Ambrose's Peanut Brittle and it's Effects on Voters of Barrack Obama-"...American voters who voted for the young Illinois Senator in 2008 were all have seen to drink "Brazilian Peanut Butter Kool Aid...a drink know to cause those who ingest it to believe they are seeing the Messiah.", p. 993.

Spooky - that explains a lot. I guess during the years 1997-2007 there must have been an awful lot of BPB imported into the UK.........know what I'm saying??

Well of course. According to Ambrose's The decline of the British Empire and it's Roots in the Widespread use of BPB From the early 20th Century Britain lost it's empire directly because of BPB abuse by first "..British Pols and secondly by the citizenry as a whole..." p. 1,677.

You northern concrete ghetto rats wouldn't know good brittle if it hit you in the liverwurst. The only good brittle is PECAN brittle.

That's P-can not P-con.

Now get back to your scrapple and kraut.

Well yes, BPB and the small matter of stopping first the Kaiser, and then Hitler, from claiming hegemony in Europe. Those two events didn't do the coffers much good either.

But I take Ambroses' point. Disraeli had the chance to ban BPB from our shores but, allegedly being a BPB fiend himself, he decided to not only make it legal, but compulsory for the ruling classes. The consequences were all too predictable......

Yes, Disraeli was friends with Conan Doyle and the two would bar-hop, hopped up on BPB. The aloof attitude and bad teeth of the Brits was, again, due to BPB use. Also, serving it in all school lunches and hospital meals led to England having the highest rate of BPB addiction in the world.

Peanut Brittle seem to be involved in every important event in the 20th century and I had no clue at all.

M'cColleague, according to Ambose's PEANUT BRITTLE'S DISCOVERY AND PERPETUATION DURING THE TIME OF MOSES AND IT'S EFFECTS UPON THE FUTURE, "Peanut Brittle has been involved in every important event in WORLD history since it was accidentally discovered by Moses. You see, one plague GOD visited upon the Egyptians was so horrible it is not mentioned in the Bible. God was so enraged with Pharoh that he caused a rain of "...an intoxicating substance, stronger than any known metal, to fall upon the stiff necked Egyptians...Moses, seeing the new song and dance "Walk Like an Egyptian" being performed picked up several of the self-reproducing pieces and the history according to Brian changed."

The best book will sadly never be written: Ambroses' Freak Yachting accidents caused by repeated use of BPB is not a tome that will ever hit the shelves for obvious reasons.......

Maybe not, but I heard Peter Jackson and Steven Speilberg are teaming up to make a movie about Ambroses' Freak Yachting accidents caused by repeated use of BPB.

Really? I wonder who will play the great man himself. It won't be easy finding an actor that can accurately portray Ambrose; after all he only had one leg, six, webbed-fingers on his left hand, was 4ft 11 inches and weighed 350lbs. That a tall order .......unlike Ambrose

Mrs. Steiner and I went to a local Italian Restaraunt last night to try a new popular dish, Beef Brasato with Pappardelle and Mint sprinkled with crushed Peanut Brittle. It was awesome.

Oh No! potential disaster has befallen the project. Having thought he had a perfect match with Robbie Coltrane, Steven Spielberg advises me that is not the case: One leg - check, six webbed fingers on left hand - check, 4ft 10 - check, weght 350lbs - check. What is the problem I hear you ask? Well Coltrane comes from Lanarkshire in Scotland, but Ambrose was of course a highlander. There is simply no way that Coltrane, great actor though he is, can carry off the accent of a resident of Inverness. The highly attuned American cinema-going public will simply not buy Coltrane as Ambrose because of this; his Lanarkshire tones will stand out a mile.

Moaned Spielberg "I think the project is off. Getting the accent right is everything - look what happened when Disney got an American to do a cockney accent. Yes, that's right, you end up with Dick van Dyke, playing Bert, the first South African chimney sweep in Edwardian London - Disaster".

Spielberg continues "The speech of the middle classes in Scotland tends to conform to the grammatical norms of the written standard, particularly in situations that are regarded as formal. Highland English is slightly different from the variety spoken in the Lowlands in that it is more phonologically, grammatically, and lexically influenced by a Gaelic substratum".

Spielberg droned on "Scottish English is a rhotic accent, meaning /r/ is pronounced in the syllable coda. As with Received Pronunciation, /r/ may be an alveolar approximant [ɹ], although it is also common that a speaker will use an alveolar tap [ɾ]. Less common is use of the alveolar trill [r] (hereafter, <r> will be used to denote any rhotic consonant)".

So there you have it - no idea what the man is talking about, but it sounds serious.....

I knew I could depend on you to get the real story. As for that "highly attuned" American cinema going publi..."

Spielberg sure did drone one, so much so that I would suspect you were nearly ready to launch a drone at him. But at least after reading that tale I now know Spielberg is a TOOL.

I am three quarters of the way through and so far not one solitary mention. I am feeling slightly miffed. The back of the book states:

In this, Ambroses' final book on Peanut Brittle, he lifts the lid on the question of whether Peanut Brittle is salted or unsalted.

Harumph....

There was a rumour that this book was actually ghost-written, but the author has not been identified. I can't believe Ambrose would do such a thing, all his books are page turners.

So there you have it - no idea what the man is talking about, but it sounds serious.....

It's hard to believe that no one has touched on the single greatest controversy surrounding peanut-brittle, that being whether its salted or unsalted.



Oh dear me. I have failed.

warspite1 is reading Ambrose's last book which did address this issue.

I am three quarters of the way through and so far not one solitary mention. I am feeling slightly miffed. The back of the book states:

In this, Ambroses' final book on Peanut Brittle, he lifts the lid on the question of whether Peanut Brittle is salted or unsalted.

Harumph....

Well I agree except most of this book so far is just a re-hash from his 437 previous books on the subject. I suspect that it was not ghost written but that by the time of his last book, Ambrose was a shell of the man he once was. Remember this was written just thirty-six hours before he set sail in the Saucy Nymphe for the last time....

Sounds plausible. How much time do you think he spent writing this book???

This was one of his longer-researched efforts. Let me see now, he left his Inverness home at 06:30 in the morning. Flora drove them to the port, so he had three hours to research and write the book on his laptop. He posted it to his publishers at 09:30 that day and it was in print and had become a best-seller just as the Saucy Nymphe was disappearing below the waves a day and a half later.

Hence is apparent failure to include an answer to the original question-salted or unsalted. I wonder if you could create a book about BPB or just PB period from this thread.

Maybe, but is there anything new we have uncovered that can add to Ambroses' work? Of that I am not sure.
