Celebrate National Peanut Butter Day

It's National Peanut Butter Day! 

From the internet: 
 "The average person consumes more than six pounds 
of peanut products each year, making peanut butter a very popular
household food. 
Peanut butter was invented by George Bayle, a St. Louis snack food maker, during the 1890's.
Did you know that it takes 550 peanuts to make a 12 ounce jar of peanut butter?"
To celebrate bake some peanut butter cookies or enjoy peanut butter as a spread on 
crackers, bread an apple slice or just enjoy a spoonful out of the jar.

Jif Peanut Butter is my personal favorite.
A little Kentucky trivia for you: 
 Jif Peanut Butter is made is in Lexington, KY
