January 24 is National Peanut Butter Day. Peanut butter is a classic American food, so why don’t you support local businesses and commerce and use it as an excuse to celebrate this day?
Over the years there have been many attempts to manufacture THE BEST peanut butter. Canadian Marcellus Edson made cooled product of peanuts and sugar, that had a consistency like that of butter, lard or ointment. John Kellog used boiled peanuts for his own peanut butter and George Bayle tended to making peanut butter with roasted peanuts.
Today peanut butter is a product that over 90% of American families cannot live without.
It comes in two different varieties: smooth and chunky.
Did you know that peanut butter is cholesterol free and it’s a great source of protein? In fact high protein content draws moister from your mouth, that is why peanut butter sticks to the roof of your mouth.
Celebrate National Peanut Butter Day with some peanut butter spread on your toast or just with a spoonful right from the jar. And remember, that it takes 550 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of creamy peanut butter.
