What is Peanut Sauce
Peanut sauce is a popular condiment in many parts of the world. It is made from peanuts, oil, and a variety of other ingredients, depending on the region.
In Southeast Asia, peanut sauce is often used as a dipping sauce for fresh vegetables or grilled meat.
In Indonesia, it is a common ingredient in satay, a dish of skewered and grilled meat.
In Thailand, peanut sauce is often served with noodle dishes such as pad thai.
Peanut sauce has a rich, nutty flavor that is both sweet and savory.
The thickness of the sauce can vary depending on the recipe, but it is typically thick enough to coat a food item.
Peanut sauce can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for later use.
How long will homemade peanut sauce last in the refrigerator
The sauce should last up to 7 days when stored in an airtight container and kept in the refrigerator.
Note that a sauce made with Peanut Butter will last longer than a sauce made with raw peanuts.
Can you freeze homemade peanut sauce
Yes. Simply place the sauce in an airtight container and store it in the freezer for up to six months.
When you’re ready to use it, thaw the sauce overnight in the refrigerator or warm it up in a pan on the stove.
How to tell if peanut sauce has gone bad
The best way is to smell it. If the sauce smells sour or rancid, it’s time to throw it away. Also, the sauce may change color or texture as it starts to spoil.
If you notice any of these changes, it’s best to err on the side of caution and discard the sauce.

Peanut butter is a popular food made from peanuts, or groundnuts.
Peanuts are actually not nuts at all, but rather legumes, which are plants that produce fruits or seeds in pods.
Peanut butter is usually made by grinding roasted peanuts into a smooth paste. This paste can then be used as a spread on bread, crackers, or fruit, or as an ingredient in recipes.
In addition to being a delicious and versatile food, peanut butter is also a good source of protein and essential vitamins and minerals.

Soy sauce is a condiment made from soybeans, salt, and water. It is commonly used in Asian cuisine, and has a salty, savory flavor.
Soy sauce is made by fermenting soybeans, which breaks down the beans’ proteins into amino acids. This process also produces lactic acid, which gives soy sauce its characteristic tangy taste. Salt is added to the mixture to inhibit the growth of bacteria.
The fermented soybean mixture is then aged for several months to develop its flavor. Once it is ready, the soy sauce is filtered and bottled.
Soy sauce is a versatile ingredient that can be used in many different dishes. It can be used as a marinade, dipping sauce, or stir-fry seasoning.
It pairs well with both meat and vegetables, and can add depth of flavor to the dish.
When shopping for soy sauce, look for brands that are certified gluten-free if you are sensitive to gluten.
Dark soy sauce has a deeper flavor than regular soy sauce, and is often used as a finishing touch for dishes like sweet and sour pork or braised chicken. Light soy sauce has a milder flavor and is typically used in soups and sauces.
