I remember begging Mother to make boiled peanuts.
Oh how I loved to eat them.
They were best served hot.
Usually mother would say, "Oh I don't know.
They take a lot of salt and I'm not sure we need to eat that much salt right now."
But when we had a fresh harvest of peanuts from the garden and the peanuts were still green, she would generally make a big pan of boiled peanuts.
Recently, I was quite astonished to find several cans of
"Green Boiled Peanuts"
available for purchase in the grocery aisle.
When I spotted them, I promptly put a can in the cart to bring home to try.
And now I hear myself saying, "Oh, I don't know. They take a lot of salt and I'm not sure if we need to eat that much salt right now."
I did eat a few though.
As I munched, I tried to decide how I would describe them.
Have you ever eaten boiled peanuts?
How would you describe them?
