Did You Know?

The peanut or groundnut is a species in the legume or bean family. The cultivated peanut was probably first domesticated in the valleys of Peru in South America. Peanuts are known by many other local names such as earthnuts, groundnuts, goober peas, monkey nuts, pygmy nuts and pig nuts. Apart from being used in food, peanuts are made into solvents and oils and used in make-up, medicines and textile materials. Peanuts are cooked in many ways. One recipe is as follows: roast peanuts along with hot peppers and blend with roasted onions, garlic and oil to make a smooth sauce. Pour this over boiled potatoes. This dish is especially famous in the city of Arequipa, Peru and is known as 'papas con ocopa'.
