You guys eat em?
I just finished of about a 1/2 lb of Cajun and will be going back for more later.
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 love boiled peanuts. And being from Louisiana the spicier 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.
The scruffier the person making them, the better they taste
I like em'
gotta be extremely spicy
I toss them in a crock pot and add water as needed. They come out great!
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.
Ya All be talking about Skippy Cream Peanut Butter in a Jar....Just kidding. I have heard of Boiled Peanuts but I guess Texas was as South as I every made it.
You need to get some buddy!
Never had one.
What am I missing?
Never have even seen one.
Guess they don't make it to Missouri.
Never heard of them out west! Someone will have to enlighten me! Spicy is good!
I remember a song chestnuts roasting on an open fire or something like that.
I can't even vote I need a never tried them option to pick.
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!
That option has been added to the poll
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.
That is sacrilege.....sort of like eating "cooked" oysters.....no love from the Doc.
