Enter your recipes in PB My Way: For Life, hosted by Southern Peanut Growers 

CANTON, GA – Feb. 29, 2016 – Why did you last dig a spoon into a jar of peanut butter? Was it to top your morning oatmeal and power your day? Or to make a decadent dessert celebrating yet another milestone in life? Honoring peanut butter’s unwavering spot in our lives and on our pantry shelves, 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.
