Post index page displays unneeded info

On my posts index page it simply lists each post, but then after it displays this:

[#<Post id: 1, content: "This is a post", created_at: "2014-07-27 18:06:09", updated_at: "2014-07-27 18:06:09">, #<Post id: 2, content: "This is another post", created_at: "2014-07-27 18:06:19", updated_at: "2014-07-27 18:06:19">]

My Post controller is:

class PostsController < ApplicationController
    def index
        @posts = Post.all

And index.html.erb

<%= @posts.each do |post| %>
        <%= post.content %>
<% end %>

Remove the = symbol from this: <%= @posts.each do |post| %>. You only want the selected content to be printed and the = prints every post with all its attributes. If it's <% @posts.each do |post| %> - the logic is executed, but is not printed in the view.
