Did you know that November is not only Thanksgiving, but also a month to celebrate peanut butter? The holiday was first started by the Southern Peanut Growers Association in 1990 on November 4th. The day was so popular that it was expanded to the entire month. According to Peanut Butter Lovers.com, Americans consume about 64 million pounds of peanut butter each November.
Peanut butter can be a great addition to a prepper’s kitchen because it contains a variety of nutrients, is easy to prepare, and easy to store. Sources I examined stated that homemade peanut butter is best stored in the refrigerator or freezer as it has a low acidity which makes it risky to can. But if you feel like it, you could always experiment. Or, a simpler option would be to store the peanuts and make it into butter as you go.
