It’s easy to forget that the peanut & honey movement started in the 1800s, when a young Benjamin Franklin was working in the Pennsylvania State House when he wrote a letter to his mother, Mary Franklin, who had a passion for honey.
The letter included some simple advice to make your peanut butter and honey story more relevant: Make the peanut sauce & butter more interesting by making the peanut bits more colorful and/or appealing, or the sauce more creamy.
Make it taste like peanut butter with a bit of sweetness to it, like you would in a homemade honeycomb.
Don’t make the sauce sweet and sour like you do in a traditional peanut sauce.
And don’t use peanut butter as the base for other ingredients like peanut flour, which are also great to have.
If you can make peanut butter without the butter, you’re missing out on the best of the best.
The peanut & ham story has been around since the late 1800s.
Its origin story is also rooted in the fact that the word “chickens” was a term for both humans and animals in the English language at the time.
For some people, the peanut was their first love, as it is a natural and easy way to get their hands on a little bit of nutrition.
And for others, the taste of peanut butter made them feel good about themselves, so they made it part of their daily routine.
But for many others, peanut butter wasn’t the reason they wanted to become a peanut lover.
Some of those early fans, like John Pemberton, are still out there, as they write about their favorite childhood treats for the Smithsonian’s blog.
And they say their obsession with peanut butter dates back to a time when the American peanut industry was in its infancy.
“We had very little experience with the peanut plant and a lot of our food was produced by the British,” Pemberon says.
The first peanut butter recipe that Pembert and others made was for an egg and was called the Egg Noodle.
It was a “sour” flavor, as the authors note.
They say it’s no surprise then that peanut butter is a staple of their recipes today.
Pemberton says that a lot people don’t know that the origin of peanut sauce comes from the English word for “salt” and “pepper.”
“When you look at the history of the peanut, it’s a pretty clear case of how this thing came into existence,” he says.
