"You Find More Peanuts as You Head Northward in China"

Jim Leff | May 3, 201701:17 PM     5

Any comments on this loose rule-of-thumb observation?

=========
The further north you go in China, the more peanuts you see in the cooking (in quantity and in breadth of applications)
=========

Obviously, this isn't a precise thing. Individual chefs differ; individual cities/regions may differ, etc etc. But I think it works as a loose observation. Obviously, Dongbei uses tons of peanuts, and there's far less usage in the south. With my limited experience, there's a more or less steady increase as you head north (with, again, lots of exceptions and non-linearity).

Thoughts?
