Southern Cooking Made Easy!

Today I've been boiling peanuts.  If you're not from the South you may not have ever enjoyed this wonderful treat.  In fact you may have never seen a raw peanut before!  Don't worry Raw Peanuts are not bloody!  In fact they could be eaten raw but since they grow under ground, it's best to boil or bake them first. 

It's really easy.  Just put them in a big pot with lots of water...... BOIL them for hours keep adding water and salt.  After about 30 minutes, turn it into a slow boil, then after about 6 hours or so, try one.  If it tastes good, then drain them and start shelling! 

So tonight we will be enjoying boiled peanuts as we watch tv.  YUM!
Hope you all have a great week!


  1. Never have had them or seen them here in Oregon...that is a long time to boil them! Enjoy!

  2. Oh my goodness!! I can smell them just by reading this! Have you ever had that experience where you saw food on TV or just saw a picture of food and thought you were actually smelling it?

  3. I will have to try that! My kids love peanuts!! I bought a bag of raw peanuts (in Oregon) we roasted some and fed the rest to the squirrels.. Lol!
