Peanut butter, 100 Years Strong
We all love it, kids crave it on anything/ Americans have created new ways of eating it for almost a century. For 100 years peanuts have been a staple in American life, especially for lunch. Let's face it, we were all weaned on the stuff. We dress up like the peanut man for Halloween and eat roasted peanuts at ballgames. Have you even been to a party or wedding that doesn't serve peanuts? We are obsessed with the little legume, addicted even. We have invented bizarre recipes and outlandish uses for the dreamy cream. Can we say....Peanut Butter Crackers???

Peanut Butter Has Many Suitors in Culinary History
Peanuts have been around since the Incas and made way into Africa and eventually to the United states. It was the USA who developed a creamy peanut Nut Meal patented by Dr John Harvey Kellogg (the cereal mogul) in 1895. Joseph Lambert worked for Dr Kellogg and sold a self-made hand-operated peanut butter grinder in 1895. Apparently many companies got in on the craze by 1914. In 1928 Joseph Rosefeld invented a churning process that made smooth peanut butter. Rosenfeld licensed his invention to the Pond Company who in turn made the original Peter Pan Creamy Peanut butter licensed in 1928. All the while, Rosenfeld branded his own as Skippy in 1932 which included both creamy and crunchy style peanut butter. Peanuts became a significant crop of the South in North America.
