    Yes, we use peanut butter for sandwiches, cooking, on fruits & veggies, and for dog treats.

    PB is a good "emergency food" as it requires no preparation and is a handy source of calories, protein, and good fats. We usually keep a few spare jars around, just in case.

    I love peanut butter. It has protein, fat and sugar. I will eat a spoonful right out of the jar before I take my daily vitamin [which works better if taken with some fat.]

    I usually buy Kroger's brand which is cheaper than the name brands and tastes better to me. I keep my peanut butter in the refrigerator because I like it cold.

    Peanuts and Peanut Butter are mainly a New World thing.

    Here's an interesting historic overview.

    http://www.nationalpeanutboard.org/p...nut-butter.htm


    Here's a song from the American Civil War [Goober peas is another name for peanuts.]

    Sitting by the roadside on a summer's day
    Chatting with my mess-mates, passing time away
    Lying in the shadows underneath the trees
    Goodness, how delicious, eating goober peas.

    Peas, peas, peas, peas
    Eating goober peas
    Goodness, how delicious,
    Eating goober peas.

    When a horse-man passes, the soldiers have a rule
    To cry out their loudest, "Mister, here's your mule!"
    But another custom, enchanting-er than these
    Is wearing out your grinders, eating goober peas.

    Peas, peas, peas, peas
    Eating goober peas
    Goodness, how delicious,
    Eating goober peas.

    Just before the battle, the General hears a row
    He says "The Yanks are coming, I hear their rifles now."
    He looks down the roadway, and what d'ya think he sees?
    The Georgia Militia cracking goober peas.

    Peas, peas, peas, peas
    Eating goober peas
    Goodness, how delicious,
    Eating goober peas.

    I think my song has lasted just about enough.
    The subject is interesting, but the rhymes are mighty rough.
    I wish the war was over, so free from rags and fleas
    We'd kiss our wives and sweethearts, say good-bye to goober peas.

    Peas, peas, peas, peas
    Eating goober peas
    Goodness, how delicious,
    Eating goober peas.

    Peanuts are not even nuts. Like the above song, they're a type of pea; a legume. I ate some boiled once when in the South, pretty good, but prefer them roasted and salted.

    I painted Mr. Peanut on the side of my VW Bug back in the 70's.

    In the early 1900s peanuts became a significant agricultural crop when the boll weevil threatened the South’s cotton crop. Following the suggestions of noted scientist Dr. George Washington Carver, peanuts served as an effective commercial crop and, for a time, rivaled the position of cotton in the South.

    Dr. Carver

    With an insatiable curiosity and keen knowledge of chemistry and physics, Carver continued his research with the peanut. By separating the fats, oils, gums, resins and sugars, he went on to find many uses for the peanut. In fact, he developed more than 300 new uses for the humble legume. Recipes ranged from peanut lemon punch, chili sauce, caramel, peanut sausage, mayonnaise and coffee. While Carver's list of uses for the peanut included peanut paste, he didn't invent peanut butter.
