Good boiled peanuts are really hard to get. Most of the places where one might buy them do not cook them enough as it takes several hours of slow boiling in salt water to get them tender enough. They are extremely good when cooked right however. One of the problems is you need raw green peanuts and they are very hard to find if you don't grow them yourself. (which we used to do in the household garden) You can find them right now at the farmers market as they are in season.

This was something else I grew up with in SC and like the chicken bog was surprised when I found out the rest of the country does not eat them. They are a lot more common than chicken bog but they are almost unobtainable even here in Charlotte.

But then, I like things not everybody likes - from brussel sprouts to beets.

Chicken bog is just good ole (low)country cookin'!!! I was told that after the War, folks were so stretched for food - they would make up iron pots of chicken bog - and it would feed a crowd of folks. I have heard some wonderful stories about the proud (but aggressive) old rooster that got served up in a big ole bowl of chicken bog, Hee Hee. Add biscuits w/ honey . . .
Why not hust chicken & dumplings.. its cheap and I c an deal with the taste
What you guys are describing sounds like Raman Boodles cooked in Pork Fat

I guess I just need to go to a country store to see if they will let me sample boiled peanuts but I would need to be near a door in case Ineed to spit
but those cajun ones sophialee mention sound tempting

There is a place in Monroe that sells them, but they suck. Don't go there. Some country store/landscaping place...on 75 by the intersection of 84.

Just wondering--do you and the dog both eat one at a time out of the "bowl on the table" or at the same time?

Just kidding. Had a strange image in front of me when I read your post.

Yeah I also noticed the other day that Paula Deen's shrimp and grits recipe is a little... um.. not-how-you-really-do-it.

I recommend the cooking shows on PBS if you want to see good cooking instruction, but I've don't ever recall them making Chicken Bog. If you want to lighten it up a bit, then use just a chicken breast, a chicken thigh, and a lower fat polish sausage. This dish also works a lot better with a long grain rice so don't attempt it with a short grain rice or you will end up with a pot of glue. Fortunately long grain rice is common here so save your premium exotic short grain for stuff like sushi, etc.

I make chicken bog all the time with sushi rice. In fact that is what I prefer. You just have to soak it in water beforehand.
