Rich in Vitamin E, “the sexuality vitamin,” and vitamin B1, peanuts and peanut products are recommended by at least three leading sexologists for a restorative diet. Peanut butter is particularly worthy and nutritionists claim that this easily digested high-protein food makes for an adequate survival diet when combined with a citrus fruit like oranges. It’s said that a jar of peanut butter is found in four out of five American homes, and apparently more of us should dip into that jar. Those with more exotic tastes might search out the recipe that futurist French chef Jules Maincave invented during World War One for a dish called “young monkey stuffed with peanuts.” But for a simple potent peanut butter soup try the following:
Sautee a ½ cup of a finely chopped onion in one tablespoon of vegetable oil until golden brown. Blend in ½ cup peanut butter, lowering flame. Bring to a boil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Finally, lower the heat and let simmer ten minutes. Bon appetite!
Peanuts are used in many languages as slang for sexual symbols. They go by numerous names, including monkey nuts, ground peas or nuts, and goobers – the last (from nguba) being one of the few African words still retained in English.
