I have never in my life heard of a boiled peanut! This year I planted peanuts as an experiment...I thought my grand kids would get a kick out of it...now I'm going to have to can some!

Its OK. I deleted the multiple posts. Boiled Peanuts is a Southern thing. A BIG southern thing. Next to "Grits" Boiled peanuts are probably the biggest southern food icon there is. Traditionally you only used green (raw) peanuts because you opnly have to boil them for a short period of time. Unfortunately they green peanuts are like "raw/green" dried beans, they must be dried or cooked pretty quickly because they spoil within a short amount of time (two or three weeks even if refrigerated) and they begin to dry the mnute they leave the ground. However the roadside stands all across the south use dry raw peanuts to boil. They just have to boil them much longer to make them soft (just like dried beans do). Anyway, use the recipe in the post and try them. They have a bean like taste and are a wonderful snack that you will become addicted to immediately.
