Peanut in shell

Peanuts can be counted as an exceptionally nutritional food, and boiled peanuts offer more health benefits than raw or roasted varieties. They are a common snack food in the southern United States and Asia and they are often sold in stands by the side of the road in this region. Traditionally, boiled peanuts are consumed while still hot and wet, and are paired with beer, sweet tea, or another cold drink.History Boiled peanuts are a popular Southern snack. No official date exists for the origin of the food in the south, but the snack is thought to have gained popularity during the Civil War. As this origin legend would have it, confederate soldiers salted and boiled peanuts over campfires due to food shortages. Salt was scarce for these soldiers, so this is likely a myth, but it is true that soldiers prepared peanuts often during this period. Boiling may simply be the result of the abundance of peanut crops in this area, and the population's desire for alternatives to roasting for food preparation. Preliminary They are made by boiling unroasted peanuts in salted water for several hours without removing the shell. The boiling process makes the peanuts soft and salty. Contrary to popular belief, mature peanuts do not make very good boiled peanuts. The best salt to used in the process is coarse kosher salt, but any salt will taste delicious provided you use it generously. The best pot for boiling peanuts is a large crock pot. When selecting peanuts to boil, look for raw, green in-the-shell peanuts that are small and medium sized. Larger peanuts may be good for roasting, but they are not great for boiling. Weigh about two pounds of peanuts at the grocery store scale. Making After selecting good peanuts, next, rinse the raw peanuts in a strainer until the water runs completely clear. Place the washed peanuts in the crock pot and fill with hot water so it reaches several inches above the peanuts. Add 1 cup of salt and stir until the salt dissolves completely. Cover the pot and cook on high for about three to five hours. Peanut in shell is the material of boiling, so do not deshell before cooking. The water level should remain above the peanuts at all times. Check the pot periodically to make sure the water has not evaporated or soaked into the peanuts. Taste throughout the cooking time to make sure they are cooked to your personal liking. Once the peanuts are cooked, carefully strain them to remove the water and rest them on paper towels to cool.
