How Many Peanuts Does It Take...

By

Peanut butter, especially when it’s combined with chocolate, is one of my favorite small indulgences. There’s something about that blend of sweet with salty that I never tire of experiencing.

Peanuts even have their own national day of recognition. Did you know women prefer peanut butter, while men typically go for the chunky variety? I break the mold there—I’m a fan of the smooth creamy texture.

According to the National Peanut Board, it takes more than 500 peanuts just to make one 12-ounce jar of peanut butter. And by law, a product labeled as “peanut butter” must be at least 90 percent peanuts. You can find many more fun facts about this wonder that grows underground here – however, my contribution to the celebration is sharing some of my favorite recipes featuring peanut butter!
