New Orleans Homesick: Berled Green Peanuts!

And they're not canned!

Picked up a couple pounds of fresh peanuts at the farmers market Saturday. I miss boiled green peanuts so bad.

I dunno, it's been a few years since I've had them, and they tasted fine, even when not made/bought in the South! We New Orleans homesickers can enjoy our Berled Peanuts anywheres! And I have been informed that "green" just means fresh, unsalted, untreated, right off the peanut tree peanuts.

Berled Green Peanuts Recipe:

A buncha peanuts (1lb or 2)
A whole lotta salt (1/3rd cup, water should be briney)
A big pot
A lotta water

Put first two ingredients in the third. Boil for a couple hours.

The new husband didn't like 'em too much, he kept wantin' them to taste roasted. But he couldn't stop eatin' 'em!
