Peanut Butter Cookie Day

In the early twentieth century, southern U.S. farmers were facing nutrient-depleted soil, caused by years of cotton growing.

George Washington Carver wanted to find a solution for the farmers and settled upon the humble peanut.  Peanuts were not widely grown or used at the time.  The peanut plants would actually restore nutrition to the soil…but farmers didn’t know what to do with the bumper crop of peanuts they harvested.

Through diligent study, Dr. Carver found 300 practical uses for the peanut.

[note: I happen to have an affinity for the cookie use of the peanut.]
