Boiled Peanuts

Hi folks!
Having just spend the weekend down on gulf shores and seeing the oil on the beach for myself I wanted to tip my hat to everyone who is (actually) working towards a solution to all the nastiness that the BP well is spewing. Here's a cheap easy snack that will keep you going. Peanuts are full of good stuff that will keep an active person active.

Boiled Peanuts
Makes 15-20 servings

You will need
  • 5 lbs raw peanuts
  • 1 cup salt 
  • 1 large pot and some water.

 So fill your pot up 1/2 way with water.

Add salt.

Add peanuts.

Did you really think i was going to be hard?

OK so for the gourmet at heart it's all in the timing. I like to retain the peanut's natural flavor and not just make mushy over boiled slimy crap like you get in the gas stations that have been in the water for weeks.

Taste them as you go and after 3 to 4 hours they will be perfect. Let cool then remove them from the water do not dry! Bag wet and freeze for a ready microwave snack any time.

Easy but still yum.
