Ten random things: May 21

Ten of the many good things in the favor of peanuts as a cash crop, per George Washington Carver in his 1925 pamphlet How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it for Human Consumption:
  1. The clean cake, after the oil has been removed, is very high in muscle-building properties (protein), and the ease with which the meal blends in with flour, meal, etc., makes it of especial value to bakers, confectioners, candy-makers, and ice cream factories.
  2. The great food-and-forage value of the peanut will increase in proportion to the rapidity with which we make it a real study. This will increase consumption, and, therefore, must increase production.
  3. Pork fattened from peanuts and hardened off with a little corn just before killing, is almost if not quite equal to the famous red-gravy hams, or the world renowned Beechnut breakfast bacon.
  4. The peanut exerts a dietetic or a medicinal effect upon the human system that is very desirable.
  5. They are easily and cheaply grown.
  6. Like all other members of the pod-bearing family, they enrich the soil.
  7. The nuts yield a high percentage of oil of superior quality.
  8. They are easy to plant, easy to grow, and easy to harvest.
  9. A pound of peanuts contain a little more of the body-building nutrients than a pound of sirloin steak, while of the heat and energy producing nutrients it has more than twice as much.
  10. For man the nuts possess a wider range of food values than any other legume.
