The holidays are the time to bring out your best—to put on that little black dress or bright bow tie. The holidays are also a time to dress up the foods you serve with style and taste.
You may not usually think of peanuts or peanut butter when you conjure up images of elegant things; but here at the National Peanut Board, we beg you to reconsider. We know peanuts are that nutritious grab-and-go snack and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches bring back warm memories of our childhoods. But you may be surprised at just how elegant and dressed-up peanuts can be.
Take a look at our Torito Veracruzano for the cocktail hour, our Warm Peanut-Crusted Goat Cheese with Roasted Pears for a first course, West African Beef Suya Rum Soaked Apricot Compote with Grilled Plantains and Ground Peanuts as a main entrée and Chocolate Peanut Tarts for dessert. And that’s just to begin to inspire your holiday cooking.
