Boiled Peanuts

Boiled Peanuts

This crazy weather has got me out of whack.

Guess what I found in the grocery store the other day?

You guessed it, green peanuts.

Well, they are not actually green.

What I mean is unprocessed raw peanuts.

You know the kind that are not roasted.

In the south we call them green.

They are perfect for boiling.

We usually enjoy them watching college football.

In the fall.

I know, I know,  it is no where near the fall.

My guess is that the peanuts produced early because of the weather.

That’s the only reason I know that the grocery store would have them so early.

It is the same thing with our strawberries.

Anyway, I like to boil my peanuts with some Creole Seasoning.

I like mine with a little kick to them.

I used Tony Chachere’s.

You can use what ever brand you like,

or omit it all together.

Either way, enjoy!
