National Peanut Butter Day
Hip Hip Hooray, it’s National Peanut Butter Day!!! This is a day for all of you peanut butter lovers to celebrate. The golden color and savory flavor from the natural peanut offers a taste that has been desired for years. Although almost every other type of nut has been turned into a butter at some point, peanut butter will always have its mark as the original nut spread. Did you know peanuts are actually a legume? It’s true, but we’re happy this bean of sort is not one you cook with ham. The nutty flavor of peanuts goes well with so many different foods. Whoever had the creative idea to take the peanut and grind it into a butter should be given an award…bread and jelly just wouldn’t be the same without the creamy spread of peanut butter!
At Betsy’s Best we appreciate this amazing nut and all of the incredible health benefits it provides. Fiber, vitamin E, protein, vitamins and minerals….all packed in a tiny nut. Betsy, the creator of Betsy’s Best, is a registered dietitian and diabetes educator, so she understands the health benefits of peanuts. When she created Betsy’s Best she decided to take this original nut spread to the next level by adding other functional food ingredients to dress it up and put it in the spotlight. Cinnamon, chia seeds, organic honey and pink Himalayan salt took an already amazing butter and made it out of this world with a flavor and texture that has not ever been experienced before. If you have yet to taste the pizzazz of this peanut butter creation, then grab a spoon and dig in to see for yourself. It will be hard to stop at just one bite!
From toast to smoothies to a marinade for your chicken, the versatility is what makes peanut butter not just a spread but a unique ingredient to enhance any recipe.
