Boiled Peanut

Boiled peanut is a popular snack from the Southern American cuisine. Semi-mature or green peanuts are best suited for boiling as they impart the best flavors on being boiled. The mature ones are not recommended for boiling. They are simmered in salted water and they acquire a delicious salty flavor when done. They are seasoned with salt and pepper. The boiled peanuts are as tender as boiled peas and beans. Valencia peanuts are found to be the most appropriate peanuts for making boiled peanuts dish
