I will certainly be glad when this years' new crop of peanuts hits the bins of my local produce market. I make a really mean batch of boiled peanuts, Yes, I understand that they are an either love them something fierce, or even the thought of them makes you sick, type of thing. Those of us that dearly love them are always appreciative of a really good batch, and... I probably make some of the best boiled peanuts in this neck of the woods. Friends are already starting to ask me about them.

I live in PA. But I used to drive truck to our southern states. I always looked forward to a big cup of boiled peanuts in Georgia. Most of the quick shops and truck stops served them in crock pots and they had their “regular” and Cajon seasoned. They are a little messy to eat. However; It is one of the southern specialties that you cannot find up north.

if you don't mind the fact that they're canned, you could always go with that. better than nothing i guess. another option is to hit an ethnic market [here, the koreans carry them], and buy some raw 'green' peanuts and cook them up yourself.
