Personal Notes:
Grandma Agnew was a nutritionist who developed a formula to feed panda bears in captivity while she was a missionary in China during the 1920's.
She is not however remembered for her cooking which was very limited in scope. She used mayonnaise to make the peanut butter go farther. Needless to say the peanut butter and banana sandwiches had a special flavor. She did invent this healthy treat though and we have tried to recreate it for this book. Watch out , they are addicting!
