About this time of year, my family starts looking in the classified section of the newspaper and just asking around to see who has freshly-dug peanuts for sale.
We love to make boiled peanuts a few times each fall.
If you've never made your own boiled peanuts, it's very easy. Your house will smell like boiled peanuts for a few days, but we think it's worth it!
- 5-6 pounds freshly-dug peanuts in shell
- 1/2 cup of salt
Drain water and store peanuts in the refrigerator.
