*Peanut butter* is a food paste made primarily from ground dry roasted
peanuts, popular in North America, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom,
Australia and parts of Asia, particularly the Philippines and Indonesia. It
is mainly used as a sandwich spread, sometimes in combination with other
spreads such as in the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The United
States^[1] and China are leading exporters of peanut butter. Other nuts are
used as the basis for similar nut butters.

*History*

Peanuts are native to the tropics of the Americas and were mashed to become
a pasty substance by the Aztec Native Americans hundreds of years ago. A
number of peanut paste products have been used over the centuries, and the
distinction between peanut paste and peanut butter is not always clear in
ordinary use. Early forms of peanut butter, like the Aztecs' version, were
nothing but a paste made from roasted peanuts. Modern processing machines
allow for very smooth products to be made, which often include vegetable
oils to aid in its spreadability.

Evidence of peanut butter as it is known today comes from U.S. Patent
306,727, issued in 1884 to Marcellus Gilmore Edson of Montreal, Quebec,
Canada, for the finished product of the process of milling roasted peanuts
between heated surfaces until the peanuts entered "a fluid or semi-fluid
state."
