Green peanuts are even fresher than raw peanuts.  Get the green ones if you can.  It makes a huge difference.

...Green meaning freshly picked - not actually green in color...

Boiled peanuts is one of the primary food groups in SC (they sell them at the moonshiner's reunion for those of you that are coming - big styrofoam cup for $3).

Mmmm...go good with beer...Mmmm.

Hey Ron.  We were down at Willey's a week ago and they had raw peanuts by the bag or bulk.  We were tempted, but did not partake.

This is good to know.  I'll have to pick some up next time I get over there.  Thanks!

Found a can of Green Boiled Peanuts. Margaret Holmes Peanut Patch brand.

Drain and rinse. Shell like regular peanuts. Briny. Soft texture and tastes like a bean married a peanut. Hard to describe but I can see the same compulsive behavior as with regular peanuts in the shell. Firm shells and not slimy. The one's I had before had to have been made by someone who didn't know what they were doing.

With all due respect, canned boiled peanuts are to fresh boiled peanuts what canned corn is to fresh boiled corn on the cobb.

They'll do if you're stuck in a fallout shelter hiding from nulear winter.

Oh I'm not saying they're badass. But now I have something to go by. For my location, which is fairly Southerly- boiled peanuts are something of a rarity even though we grow'em here.

I will be sure to stop at any roadside Boiled Peanut stand to sample the wares.
