You’ll like them…Snack on boiled peanuts

I didn’t stop just to take this photo but I stopped to buy the bag of peanuts. Oh my gosh they are really delicious and you can’t stop eating them!  It is not uncommon in Georgia and South Carolina USA  to see road side stands with peanuts boiling away in backyard cookers.

The peanuts are green meaning “just harvested” and not the color.  They are boiled in very salty water for 3-5  hours. The shell gets soft and the peanuts taste totally different than canned or  ball park peanuts.  If I had describe them I would say more like a garbanzo bean, at least to me.  Keep a bowl or napkin close by  to dispose the of the shells, and definitely have a cold drink at hand.  On the advise of the locals a  “coke”or “sweet tea” is the preferred drink.

If you’re thinking about an appetizer to impress your friends give them a try….

For more information about how to cook them here’s a recipe from Savannah’s own Paula Deen : http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/boiled-peanuts-recipe2-1913519
