It's easy to take a kitchen staple like peanut butter for granted. It's always there in the back of the pantry, often not seeing the light of day until you need to go shopping. There's really no reason to keep it hidden. Check out some of these cool peanut butter facts that might have you using it a little more often. The kind folks over at Culinary Schools sent us this great graphic that has all sorts of information about peanut butter. In the past we've talked about a few of our favorite ways to eat it in the past and 10 ways to hack a peanut butter sandwich to be more than basic, so needless to say, we love our mushed up legumes!
Check out the pictures above for some history, alternate uses and health information — all good stuff. There's a few that even through us for a loop, for instance, did you know you could use peanut butter instead of shaving cream? One wonders if you can get a strawberry jelly aftershave to go with it?
