Curried Peanut Spread (Thai Satay Sauce)

[Photograph: Leela Punyaratabandhu]

This is great smeared on crackers or as a sandwich spread. Feel free to adjust the seasoning to taste. The spread hardens somewhat once refrigerated. To resume its spreadable consistency, simply microwave it briefly or whisk in a few drops of warm water as necessary.

Note: For best results, use only natural peanut butter. It should be the kind of natural peanut butter where you can see the peanut oil on the top and not the emulsified, spreadable-at-room-temperature kind. This is the only product that serves as a substitute for ground roasted peanuts most effectively.
