National Peanut Butter Fudge Day is celebrated on November 20 in America. This delicious holiday is a great occasion to enjoy a unique and tasty treat! There are many types of fudge – each housewife or chef prepares it according to their own recipe.
The creation of fondant is a matter of chance. Reports say that a European confectioner was attempting to make caramel, but instead ended up with something similar to fudge. Thus, the name stuck. Some believe that the word meant something like “deceit”, as the result was not what was intended. The cooking method for fudge varies depending on taste. It can be airy, creamy, firm, or flaky. National Peanut Butter Fudge Day was founded by an organization that studies peanuts. Bob White, the chairman of the institution, shared his joy at the American’s excellent taste and the presence of peanuts in their diet.
Here are some interesting facts about peanuts:
- It is a grass and is a part of the annual legume family.
- It can grow on less fertile soils, which is why it has become so widespread in Africa.
- They can cause serious allergies, so caution is advised when trying it for the first time.
- The word ‘peanut’ comes from the Greek word ‘spider’.
- Up to 40 fruits can grow on one plant.
