    They used to be people selling boiled GREEN peanuts on the side of the road all the time here in the south,there not now.The only ones you can get is from the local convienence store and they are like eating flavored pinto beans!!

    Does anyone have a recipe for homemade Green peanuts?

    We got a farmers marcket 1/2hr drive away when the season comes.So getting them is not a problem..

    I throw them in a crock pot with water and some salt. Here is what I posted on the Crock pot crazy thread...

    Do you take them out opf the shells? (Sorry, that's probably a dumb question!) I doubt the ones we get are fresh enough, even in the shells?

    Boiled peanuts are one of my most favorites foods in the universe. Just take your fresh green peanuts, dump in a big ol' pot, cover with water and plenty of salt. Just let them boil until they reach the doneness you prefer. They will soak up salt if you let them sit in the water, so keep that in mind as well. Yum!!! As a side note, the only ones I'll eat that I haven't cooked are the Peanut Patch cans - they are not that good (but not horrible either), but when that's all you can get, I'll take them!

    I guess they'll also be less fattening than your regular salted/dry roast peanuts but with health benefits?:goodvibes

    I'll check the site out - its likely to be the postage that stops me, as even on scrapbook supplies it can be as much again as the products :headache:

    ETA they don't send to the UK but are "happy to send them anywhere in the US". what then - I go collect them? :confused: Oh well
