National Dessert Day!

Food sanitation demonstration
Dianne Twete traveled to Huehuetengo, Santa Ana Guatemala on September 13 through September 25, 2015 to work with a group of women and provide them with the basics of Good Manufacturing Practices. 

After a demonstration by the women on how they processed and packaged their peanuts, a number of recommendations were made to improve their levels of sanitation and hygiene to prevent food borne illness to the consumer. Three new recipes where introduced and demonstrations were made, with the help of the women, for the purpose of providing a new product line, using their peanuts and peanut butter. These women were gracious and eager to learn and receive this new information.

In honor of National Dessert Day, here's the recipe for peanut butter cookies that Ms. Twete used in Guatemala!
