Nutty, creamy or crunchy? Peanut butter has always had a place in American culture and is a staple in over 90% of US households.

Here’s a little peanut butter history for you :
Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (of cereal fame) invented a version of peanut butter in 1895. Then, George Bayle, a St. Louis snack food maker, developed a version of peanut butter as a protein substitute in the 1890′s for his older patients who had poor teeth and couldn’t chew meat. Peanut butter was first introduced at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. For many years, manufacturers struggled with the oil separating from the grainy solids of the peanut butter. In 1923 Heinz became the first company to homogenize the peanuts into the spreadable butter we know and love today. Before long peanut butter was a classic American food.
Did you know it takes 550 peanuts to make a 12 ounce jar of peanut butter? Peanuts are cholesterol free and an excellent source of protein. In fact, it’s the high protein content that causes peanut butter to stick to the roof of your mouth.
We joke that my husband bleeds peanut butter, so we always have a large jar or two in our pantry! Which might explain why I have over 20 peanut butter recipes here on TidyMom.
