Unit 4 - Peanut Butter (Audio)


Americans love to eat peanut butter. But what is peanut butter? lt is a thick, creamy paste. You buy it in a jar at the grocery store. Manufacturers roast peanuts and take off the skin. Then they grind them into a thick paste that's peanut butter!

The peanut is not really a nut, but a pea. lt is a strange pea because it grows underground. But peanut plants also have green vines with yellow flowers. These vines or stems grow above the ground and are quite long. Peanuts are very healthy for you.
They have more protein than a steak and they have many vitamins, too.

The peanut comes from South America, but peanut butter is a food that is truly "American." Peanut butter started in 1890 in St. Louis. A doctor made some peanut butter. He gave it to patients who could not eat regular food. Later, peanut butter was popular as a health food.

Peanut butter is very popular with children in the United States.
Perhaps their favorite way to eat it is in a sandwich. Many children add
jelly to their peanut butter sandwiches. This makes a favorite snack or lunchtime meal.
