Yummy peanut butter
In 1884, New Yorker Rose Davis made peanut butter in 1840, Canadian Marcellus Edson gained a patent for it, George A. Bayle made peanut butter in 1890, John Harvey Kellogg, received a patent for suchlike product in 1897, and Ambrose Straub from St Louis, Missouri patented a peanut butter making machine in the 1903, the same year George Washington Carver introduced his peanut butter recipe. The next year, C H Sumner introduced peanut butter commercially at the Universal Exposition in St Louis. But it would be Joseph L. Rosenfield who would take it big time from 1922 onward. Rosenfield licensed his churning process for smooth peanut butter to the Peter Pan brand in 1928 but in 1932 introduced his own Skippy brand. Today, peanut butter is a billion dollar industry. Thanks to that guy or girl whose name we don’t know. Beyond the world of crunchy or smooth peanut butter there is white or dark chocolate peanut butter, cinnamon and raisin peanut butter, even spicy peanut butter.
