(1) Wed Sep 05 2007 16:51 Boiled Peanuts: Or bold peanuts, as they say down south. Fun fact: peanuts are legumes! I know this seems like an academic point when you're snacking on them at the ballpark, but when they're boiled they taste and mouthfeel like beans and you start wanting to make curry out of them. Tragically un-recommended.
boiled peanuts are good. mushy, salty, spicey (if you get the spicy kind) and free in unlimited amounts at the florida welcome station. the kind in a can, i can say with some authority, isn't good. but the kind at the side of the road is. of course it goes without saying that my culinary opinions are widely regarded as sketchy at best.
