Chicken barbecue sauce recipe showcases flexibility of peanut butter

The seemingly lowly peanut butter that was a staple of my school lunches has ties to some of history’s luminary figures. 

Even better, peanut butter is a nutritiously dense food items not confined to juvenile fare.  

The ancient Incas and Aztecs of South America ground peanuts into a paste.

A nearer model of what we know as peanut butter right now is attributed to Marcellus Gilmore Edson of Canada (1849–1940), who in 1884 patented a process for turning roasted peanuts into a paste, in accordance to the Nationwide Peanut Board.

In The us, cereal pioneer Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (1852–1943) patented in 1895 a system for turning raw peanuts into a butter-like consistency. Equipment designed by many others expedited the creation system, permitting peanut butter to get broader enchantment.

But, credit rating George Washington Carver (c. 1864–1943), born into slavery before the Civil War’s finish, for harnessing all the potential of the peanut. Following he gained a master’s degree in agricultural science, the first Black man to do so, he was named in 1896 director of agriculture at Tuskegee Institute.
