I think they're definitely an acquired taste. I've tried boiled peanuts several times on my trips to the South, and just reading about them here is turning my stomach.

$100

Well, to each his own! I'd give $1000 to have a boiled peanut stand somewhere near my house!

Love this thread !!! It is very interesting....

Boiled peanuts is a famous beach-side snack in the Southern part of India.

The cooking procedure is same as KathrynAragon mentioned. The variation is that, along with the boiled de-shelled peanuts, very finely chopped red onion, tomato, raw/green mangoes, and grated carrot is added. It is served in paper-cones.

This is how it looks Shobana's Cooking Journal!: Boiled Masala Peanuts. Even corn kernals is cooked in similar way, and eaten as snack.

Here in San Antonio we love a fresh fruit cup with chile powder and lime. Delicioso! I even put chile powder seasoning on my theatre popcorn.

A crock pot and some raw peanuts (in the shell) and you'll have a boiled peanut stand in your house . I cook them quite often because the family loves them (and I'm in Dixie).

At just about any outdoor event, from sporting events to flea markets, we have food trucks that specialize in roasted corn. It's so delicious! It's roasted over an open flame, and then when you order one, they pull back the husk, dip it in melted butter, and then you have a wide selection of what you'd like to put on it - from parmesan cheese to jalepenos, chili powder, Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning, mayonnaise, lemon pepper, sea salt, Lawry's seasoned salt, BBQ flavoring, curry, just about anything you can think of.

YUM. My favorite combo is parmesan cheese and Tony's, with a sprinkling of chili powder. And by the way, you would be surprised to find how good it is with a squirt of mayo on it (spread around) but I don't do that often because my gosh, it's already been dipped in butter...
Elote, popular with Mexican street vendors where I live, except the toppings aren't as varied. Just roasted corn, butter, mayo, cotija cheese (similar to grated parmesan), a squirt of lime juice, and cayenne. Good street food.

I LOVE boiled peanuts - if they're freshly boiled, steaming hot, served up in a lunch sized paper bag. YUM. So salty and juicy and delicious!

I LOVE those! LOVE! I had them first in South Carolina about 15 years ago. Bought them on the side of the road outside of Myrtle Beach. I ate a whole bag of the spicy ones and went back later that day for seconds.

Did they originate on the Gulf coast or are they just all over the South? I'm craving them right now!
