Update....

  Canned all I had left and my wonderful and loving kids came over Father's Day and took all of the pints home with them >:( >:( >:(

%$&#ing Kids!!!

I love them though :D :D :D

So, bought some more.

 This time I pressure cooked them. Tubercle thought, why not? I pressure cook everything else ;D

 I put a couple of pounds in a 1 cup salt/1gallon water ratio brine and brought them to a boil and cut off the heatand let them soak in the hot brine for 1 hour to saturate the hulls. Clamped down the lid and then 45 minutes @ 15 psi. They turned out better than if they had been cooked all day.

 I have found a new method 8) 8)

I take it this is raw peanut season?  Do they store well fresh, or is boiling/canning the best way to go?

Keep them in your root cellar.

Got it.  Step 1 - dig a root cellar. ;)

How long will they keep that way?

A year + as long as they are cool/dry.
 
 For boiling/canning, the greener the better. After they cure for a long time then roasting (and then homemade peanut butter ;D) is the only way to go.

Ah, so if I want to try fresh boiled peanuts I need to get them now?  Or can they be frozen and then boiled later?

for what it's worth tubercle, google said this:

Consumers of boiled peanuts much prefer fresh green peanuts or frozen green peanuts brought back to a boil, rather than some type of dried or canned boiled peanuts.  Freezing does not seem to harm the flavor at all.

Seriously, I don't know why freezing wouldn't work. Just never concidered it...UNTIL NOW!!!! Mmmuuuuhahahahhaha.

 Fresh peanuts all year long  ;D ;D ;D ;D
