I say “Peanut”, you say “Butter”…

Finally there is a day after my own heart! ❤

If you know me – whether personally, physically, emotionally, mentally, dream-state or virtually –  you know that my one weakness of the spread variety is the Great PB! 🥜

I actually fully, frankly and categorically believe that I put the “nut” in Peanut Butter! Properly nuts, that’s me…

Let’s all get real (or fake trying), Peanut Butter is glorious! On a slice of toast, a cracker, a banana, a sweet potato… Peanut Butter can be applied on anything and still make it taste a billion times better.

I even make a West African curry/soup using the stuff, and regularly make Satay sauce to accompany my grilled chicken kebabs…

🚨 This is an appreciation post for the LEGEND that is the human-being who looked at a peanut (all those years ago) and thought: “you know what? You’ll look and taste even better as a paste…

“As a gloriously crunchy OR smooth paste ready to be used in sweet and savoury dishes across the land!” 🚨

In 1884 Marcellus Gilmore Edson of Canada patented peanut paste, the finished product from milling roasted peanuts between two heated surfaces.

Thank you, Marcellus Gilmore Edison of Canada. I wish I was alive some 100 years ago to have given you all of my money (all £1 of what’s left of it #HurryUpPayDay) in return for a 100% stake in your business. #DragonsDen

This is also a shout-out to the likes of Peanut Hottie (the hot or cold peanut drink) and Meridian peanut butter, the organic, no palm oil alternative to my writing personal favourite, Whole Foods, (although Whole Earth have one which doesn’t contain Palm Oil).

Writing this post has inspired me to purchase some Beer Nuts to put in a blender and crush the living daylights out of them and then lick the contents of the food processor afterwards.

Disclaimer: Peanut Butter is “beautiful” hence why it is being featured on Beauty Bae. Furthermore, Peanut Butter has a host of nutritional benefits and has been proven to aid with weight-loss!

… What is it that Mary Poppins didn’t say? “A spoonful of Peanut Butter* makes the medicine go down?” Yeah, that!
