Making Boiled Peanuts
Secure some green peanuts. You can come by them in almost any supermarket down South. I got them at the IGA supermarket in Camden. I frozen them and packed them in my suitcase. They travelled well and now days later, I removed them from the freezer.
Next you rinse and place them in either a big pot with water or into a slow cooker because they have to boil for at least four hours. I am choosing to do the latter since I will not have to watch the pot while they are boiling. I am now an experienced lady since I did my first batch of peanuts in Camden! Please laugh. Doing them one time hardly makes me experienced but it does give me some confidence. I love that they tasted a little salty but that I controlled to a certain extent how much salt they contained. The other neat thing is that I also know how fresh these peanuts are. Am I excited that I am going to have some boiled peanuts here in Puerto Rico? You betcha!
