    UNITE!

    Bought five lbs. of green peanuts at Wally World today and they're soaking in plain, unsalted water overnight (the secret to great boiled peanuts).

    In the morning they'll be drained and the water replaced with brine. Then, onto the fish cooker for about three hours.

    Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum YUM! :)

    5 lbs, huh? Outta be enough for one sittin, dontcha think? ;f

    When the first crop comes in I always overindulge, and you know where that leads. ;C

    I'm curious what kind of peanuts a Carolina WW sells. Are they predominantly 2-meat or do they run 3 to 4 meats per?

    Five pounds will do...for starters!! We usually put about 35-40 pounds in the freezer. We love 'em, so we're with you on this one. Thousands of tons of the the little rascals are grown here in our county in south Ga.

    For those of you that cook "low country boils", after you take out all of your shrimp,sausage,corn,potatoes and carrots...throw in a pile of fresh green peanuts, and let them cook while you eat. AAHHHH...the spices. The spices.........^c

    Back in high school, me and a buddy cooked up a five gallon bucket of boiled peanuts that we harvested from my grandpa's back field.....

    ate them in one sitting washing them down with multiple twelve ounces of liquids that we weren't supposed to be able to buy or consume at that tender, young age.

    Ahh, those were the days. Of course we almost died the next day from repeated trips to the can.

    But it was worth it.

    I used to love buying boiled peanuts at roadside stands all over south Georgia. And I love a good low-country boil. Remember to suck them crawdad heads.

    Now that's good eatin!

    Wahl, I've always said you can never acquire a taste for grits or boiled peanuts unless you grew up eating them.

    More for me. :)

    Grits are okay with butter, and I didn't grow up with them. Even better when creamed and served with seafood, which they did in Charleston.

    Oddly I'm a fan of boiled peanuts also but they were always sold by Asians when I was growing up. When we went to Honolulu Stadium for football games there were Japanese vendors on the sidewalk selling large bags of boiled peanuts. I still like them.:)

    Did they cook them in brine, as is the Southern fashion?

    Yes I think they did but they weren't too salty.
