What are Partially Defatted Peanuts?

They are peanuts with some (but not all) of the fat removed. You can also get partially defatted cocoa, which is used a lot in low-cal hot chocolate. Both taste the same as the real thing. Removing the fat can add shelf life (nut fats go rancid quickly), or make the product appear nutritionally "healthier".

Where did peanuts get their name?

Two possibilities here:

  1. The peanut, the legume from which peanut butter is made, was given the name "peanut" in America circa 1790, as it is a legume (similar to a pea) that resembles a nut.
  2. Peanuts, the comic strip formerly known as L'il Folks, developed by Chrles Schultz was so named in 1950 when Charles Schultz syndicated the strip for publication daily in US national newpapers by United Features Syndicate. United Features renamed Schultz's Li'l Folk because it was too similar to two other existing comic strips that were running at the time it debuted.

Why do Americans traditionally eat cabbage black eye peas and hog jowl on January 1?

January 1 FareThe tradition is that you celebrate decadently on New Year's Eve with caviar and champagne (or the best food you can afford) to ring out the old year in style. And then, on New Year's Day, you eat more soberly in order to bring luck and prosperity for the upcoming year.

Therefore, "poorer foods" - such as Hoppin' John (black-eyed pea dish), cabbage (sauerkraut) and pork (whether hog jowls, pig's feet or just pork roast) - are served on New Year's Day.

Where can you buy fresh English peas?

Because English Peas don't have a specific growing season, they can be purchased year round. In order to purchase fresh peas, you should either check with local farms or farmers or go to farmers markets. Because English Peas are only good 2-3 days after picking, most of them are sold to companies for canning or freezing. Call around, and see if the farmers markets or farmers near you have any available; if they don't, ask if they can tell you where you can get them.
