Everyone has heard about George Washington Carver, and his famous peanut preparations. But did you know that he did not actually invent peanut butter? This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda Pelaccio is setting the peanut butter record straight with author Jon Krampner. Jon recently wrote Creamy & Curnchy, a book all about the history and evolution of peanut butter! Learn about the most popular peanut varieties, and whether or not they can be turned into good peanut butter. Hear about the five major changes that have occurred in peanut butter production throughout the years. How do preferred flavors and textures of peanut butter change throughout different areas of the the United States? Learn about the important cultural role that peanut butter plays in the United States, and why it proved to be useful in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. This episode has been sponsored by White Oak Pastures.

"I think the [return to natural peanut butter] is part of a broader trend of Americans just wanting to eat in a more healthy and natural way, and reject some of the corporate foods that have been foisted upon them." [24:00]

Welcome John La Polla of Bitter & Esters as the new guest-host of Fuhmentaboudit! He's here with a cavalcade of brewers and beer professionals in anticipation of The NY Pro-Am Brew P.I.T. (Philosophy. Inspiration. Technique.). The P.I.T. is a celebration of the local beer brewing community both professional and amateur. A one-of-a-kind event featuring local brewers and the beers they inspire. Participating home brewers (chosen via lottery from online submissions) will meet with professional local craft brewers, get a tour of their brewery, share some beer, and talk shop. The home brewer will brew a beer inspired by that meeting and serve it alongside a beer of the professional brewer’s choice at Covenhoven located at 730 Classon Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. On August 9th, there will be 2 tasting sessions. Session 1: 1-3pm, Session 2: 3:30-5:30pm. Learn more here. . This program was brought to you by GreatBrewers.com.

"When I started brewing in NY there were only 2 home brew clubs, now thanks to people like Bitter & Esters there are roughly 10-12 homebrew clubs. "Brewnity" is the umbrella and excuse to get everybody together to do events that can benefit local charities." [29:00]
