Peanut butter [is] the pâté of childhood.

—Florence Fabricant, food writer and cookbook author

Peanuts go far beyond snacks and sandwiches. Dr. George Washington Carver, a scientist who lived from about 1864 to 1943, found over 300 uses for the humble legume, using them as ingredients in chili sauce, sausage, face powder, hand lotion, glue and plastics.
