Local and Fresh—
Peanuts


        Starting now, right through the end of
the year, peanuts are being harvested throughout
the South. Green peanuts, ready for boiling or
roasting, can be found at local markets.

        Before boiling or roasting, give them a
good wash, using several changes of water, to
remove any clinging dirt. They are perishable, so
use or freeze green peanuts as soon as possible.

        Dried raw peanuts, with or without
shells, can be found in bulk bins and in packages.
The shelled nuts are often blanched to remove
the skins and they can also be boiled, just like
dried beans.

        Try boiling shelled, blanched peanuts
without salt. Add to stews, soups or curries or
use in Boiled Peanut Hummus (you may need to
add 1/2 teaspoon of salt to hummus, if desired).
