Anyone Growing Peanuts?

Just for grins, 2 years ago we put in a row of peanuts and the yield surprised everyone. The only "bad" part was the cleaning after digging them up. They were big, a lot of them were 3 nuts, and very tasty. Still have a mason jar full of them in the pantry.

    I can honestly say that I've never considered that one. I might have to when the next garden crop goes in.

    To cool at night in these mountains to grow peanuts, sweet potatoes and okra. Everything else grows good.

    I smash the young okra pod, dip it in egg, and then cornmeal and FRY it. Stewed okra is kind of slimey.

    This thread is about peanuts, not about the worst thing ever promoted as food.

    Ingredients

    1 pound of raw "green" peanuts (not the color green, but fresh raw peanuts which are called green peanuts)
    1/4 cup kosher salt (or 2 Tbsp table salt)
    4 cups water

    Optional seasoning

    2 Tbsp Old Bay Seasoning, smoked paprika, shrimp boil mix, or even star anise
    HOT PEPPER

    Method

    1 Thoroughly rinse raw unshelled peanuts in water.
    2 Put water, salt, seasoning, peanuts in a large stockpot. Bring to a low boil. Cover and reduce the heat just enough to maintain a low boil. Boil for 2 to 3 hours or longer (some boil their peanuts all day), until peanuts reach desired level of softness.
    3 Drain. Eat up within a couple of days. Boiled peanuts don't save as well as dry.
