Today, 9/13, is National Peanut Day. Today is a celebration of the peanut, which isn’t really a nut at all. Technically, peanuts are legumes. Legumes are simple dry fruits in the same family as peas and beans.
What's your favorite recipe or a way you like to use or eat Peanuts?
Mine's a plain old Crunchy Peanut Butter sandwich with any kind of bread, (except that crappy, white, plastic supermarket bread) and a cold glass of milk.
Or Home-made Peanut Butter Cookies with a cold glass of milk!
Peanuts are a remarkable food, highly nourishing to both the eater and the grower. Just ask George Washington Carver. They've suffered a dip in reputation in recent years, because of the one percent of Americans who have allergies to them. This number has doubled in recent years, likely because of the reverse placebo effect. Now we see advisories on candy bars and other products that say "This product was manufactured in a plant that processes peanuts."
