Peanuts were a staple of the colonial diet. In the historical archives at Mount Vernon, there is a letter dated 1798 from George Washington to his buying agent in which he ordered ā€œPindarsā€, another word for peanuts.Ā ā€œHalf a bushl. or bushel of the Ground Pease, or Pindars as they are calledā€¦ā€

Virginian peanuts -known for their large size and crunchy texture- have been referred to as the ā€œpeanut of the gourmetā€. These Virginia grown peanuts are cooked in pure peanut oil to keep them cholesterol-free andĀ enhanceĀ the natural peanut taste.Ā
