    Yup, big time. Used to boil up my own when the kids were young. They love them too.

    Weird for a fella from Illinoiz, I know. The juicier inside the better.

    I revere boiled peanuts. Used to buy them from a little stand run by some seriously scruffy "mountain guys" that boiled them in a cast iron pot over a fire on the side of hiway 276 headed up to Caesar's Head, north of Greenville SC. They had good jars of honey, too.

    They're excellent, got them as a gift one year, ended up giving them out the following year as gifts to clients. It was a business in VA, Plantation Peanuts (or something like that) that I ordered them through. They had many varieties I liked them all.

    Boiled peanuts, also sometimes called country caviar, are raw green peanuts that have been boiled in shell until soft, usually with Cajun seasonings and hot peppers. You eat them by cracking the shell and slurping them out along with the juice. Best damned treat in the world in my humble opinion.

    They are very much a southern thing.

    If you have a pressure cooker, they are easy to make. Lots of recipes online as well. It will be worth the effort!

    Nope! Tried them several times don't like the flavor or texture, taste like a unseasoned half cooked pinto bean.
    LOVE peanuts any other way except boiled. Drive thru the mountains of Tennessee, North Carolina seems every other house is selling them from a roadside stand.
