Peanut Sauce Ingredients:
"The main ingredient is a roasted peanut-based paste such as peanut butter, which together with soy sauce gives it a nutty and salty taste. Several different recipes for making peanut sauces exist, resulting in a variety of flavours. A typical recipe usually contains peanut butter (smooth or crunchy), coconut milk, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and spices (such as coriander seed, cumin, etc). Other ingredients may also contain chillies, milk, fried onions, sesame seed, olive oil or peanut."
"In Indonesian cuisine, the sauce originally was meant as a sauce for satay, but it is also used in many other Indonesian dishes like Saté Babi, Saté Ayam, Gado-gado, otak-otak, ketoprak, and Karedok."
"In Chinese cooking, the sauce is often used on grilled meat. Other uses include hot pot and Dan dan noodles."
"In the Netherlands, peanut sauce has become a common Dutch side dish and is usually eaten with meat (barbecue) or French Fries. Peanut sauce is also eaten with a baguette, bread, cucumber or potatoes."
"In Singapore, peanut sauce is not only used as dipping sauce for satay. It is also eaten with rice vermicelli known as Satay bee hoon."

- A common, simple outdoor bird feeder can be made by coating a pine cone once with peanut butter, then again with birdseed.
