Fascination for the peanut is astounding. This little legume has been to the moon, pushed to Pike’s Peak by someone’s nose and lands a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for being launched 111 feet 10 inches in a peanut throwing contest. It’s no wonder March is set aside as National Peanut Month with March 1 as Peanut Butter Lover’s Day.
