Dan This Land of Ours

peanut butterThere are so many different ways to enjoy this. Cathy Isom gives us a few in telling us about a day made especially for those who love a popular sandwich spread. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.

March 1st is National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day. Whether you prefer it smooth and creamy, natural or extra chunky, chances are you probably have a jar or two in your kitchen pantry. After all, it’s not just great on sandwiches, it can be paired with crackers, pretzels, celery, carrots, apples, bananas, a number amazing desserts, even bacon!

Every year, Americans spend $800 million dollars on Peanut butter. It’s an excellent source of protein and healthy fats, and can help reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Peanut butter is 90% or more peanuts. It takes approximately 540 peanuts to make a 12 ounce jar of peanut butter.

No matter how you spread it or dip it, use the hashtag #NationalPeanutButterLoversDay to enjoy and post your favorite way to eat it on social media.
