March Is National Peanut Month

22 March 2017

In case you needed another reason to love America’s favorite nut (which is actually a legume), we have plenty of reasons you should celebrate the perfectly powerful peanut during March, as well as all year long!

Peanuts are an excellent choice for snacking and cooking because of their affordability, great taste and excellent nutrition. Did you know Georgia peanut farmers grow nearly 50 percent of the peanuts produced in the United States each year? How cool is that? Most of the peanuts grown in Georgia are made into peanut butter, and/or used in peanut candy and snacks. Check out more facts from the National Peanut Board below!

Interested in roasting your own peanuts or making homemade peanut butter?  It’s easier than you may think. Check out the step-by-step recipes included and give them a try at home! For more recipes using peanuts and peanut butter, check out the Georgia Peanuts Pinterest page, www.pinterest/gapeanuts. You can also visit www.gapeanuts.com for more recipes, nutrition information and fun facts to celebrate all year long!
