Boiled Peanuts

I love boiled peanuts! I have great memories of eating them out of a brown paper bag with my dad.  My dad would make them anytime he could get his hands on fresh green peanuts.  It easier to find fresh peanuts in the south up not so much where I live in the north, so I'm using raw peanuts which will take a bit longer to cook.  ( But it's worth it)

I took this shot of the peanuts before boiling them and styled them in one of my matt blue glazed bowls. I love the contrast in color.  The peanut after they are boiled are not that pretty.  They get a real dark and muddy color that to me would not look appetizing. 

Here's the recipe for Boiled Peanuts   Enjoy!  I hope you can located some fresh peanuts!


  1. I must admit that I've never eaten boiled peanuts although they are a favorite around here and in the neighboring cities in S.C. But as for peanuts in general, they are a favorite in my family. My grandmother lives where there is a peanut factory and my parents purchase loads of peanuts there every year. My mom rebags them and gives them as presents. No one ever turns them down. Roasted peanuts are eaten quite frequently in my family!

    Great photos and a fabulous bowl. :-)

  2. Thank you, Yeah I love roasted peanuts too especially when their hot out the oven.
