Staff report

CANTON, Ga. — Southern Peanut Growers is hosting a national PB My Way: For Life recipe contest at

Launching March 1, the start of National Peanut Month, and now in its seventh year, the 2016 PB My Way recipe contest will seek the peanut butter recipes Americans turn to for life’s adventures – from meals in a busy daily routine to post-workout snacks or sweet treats enjoyed with family and friends.

“Everyone has his own special way and reason for enriching their lives with peanut butter,” says Leslie Wagner, executive director of Southern Peanut Growers, an organization that represents the farmers who grow peanuts for peanut butter. “(Because there is) least one jar in 90 percent of American households, our contest is a way to celebrate a national passion for PB and share great recipes with others.”

PB My Way: For Life recipe contest runs through April 15. People can submit PB recipes at Recipes should fall into the categories of Snack Time, Fit Fuel, Family-tested and Sweet Celebrations. One grand prize winner will receive a Vitamix1 high-performance blender. Additionally, winners in each category will be awarded boxes of peanut butter goodies, including classic PB as well as new products. The five winning recipes will be professionally photographed and featured on Southern Peanut Growers’ website and other channels.
