...boiled peanuts...


Have you ever made these?  One time when we were in South Carolina boiled peanuts came up in conversation.  Being from the Midwest and having lived in California for some time I thought, and then verbalized....what?!?!  The response I got from Mamma T was laughter mixed with, "You know!! Boiled peanuts."  To help you understand this you should probably stop saying "Boiled" as if it has two syllables in it.  In the South, it has ONE.  "Booowwwld"

Needless to say, I have yet to have them.  However, I don't think I'll be having them in a can as I saw at a grocery store off the beaten path in Virginia.  I guess I'm closer to the South than I thought after all... (I did fry something last night...shhh).
