Yes, especially if you head up towards Caesars Head and Table Rock- there are tons of roadside boiled peanut stands. You'll occasionally see them around town, too.

Make them yourself... 1 pot boiling water, a couple of pounds of GREEN p-nuts, and 1 cup salt (more or less to taste). Boil for @ 2 hours.... Can also add some cajun seasoning for a little kick or a couple ham hocks for something different.

You can get raw peanuts in bulk at the State Farmers Market on Rutherford Rd near N. Pleasantburg.

The Greenville Journal ran a column about a year ago where a guest writer gave her semi tongue-in-cheek recipe for making your own bolied peanuts... slight variation from the one above...

1-2 lb raw peanuts, 3/4 cup (+/-) of kosher salt, bring pot to boil, boil a couple of hours, let stand over night to let the salt soak in. Try a peanut, if not cooked enough, boil for a couple more hours, or as long as needed. I find that it takes a lot more than 2 hrs for the peanuts to cook sufficient for my taste. I've made several batches over the past year, and this works well for me. I just boiled a batch this past weekend. Yum!
