My brother grew peanuts in Illinois once. To make peanut butter, just grind the peanuts, add salt if desired and a little oil if needed to make smoother. Does anyone know about the dangers of aflotoxin on peanuts? How common is it?

From what I've read, aflatoxin (sp?) is present in humid growing areas, but that is all I know. Try asking on the Seeds of Change forum, but don't subscribe to their email list - I got a nasty virus from it. The folks are very knowledgeable there.
