by TRENT ROWE, Food EditorWhere would we be without peanuts and peanut butter? Kids would be eating a lot of boring jelly sandwiches, that’s for sure. And a bunch of Florida farmers would be growing a different crop. About 6 percent of all the peanuts grown in this country come from Florida soil, mostly in the Panhandle and the central part of the north. That’s where conditions are ideal. Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida are responsible for two-thirds of the U.S. peanut crop and half of that goes into grinders and comes out peanut butter.
