We just got back from rowing and lying on the beach.
It's another beautiful day here. Hard to believe that it's almost the end of October and it's shirtless beach weather.
For all who wanted to know about boiled peanuts, here's how to fix them.
Boil 1 to 2 lbs of green peanuts in the shell in heavily salted water (about a cup and a half of salt). Cook for about 2 to 3 hours. If you want them spicy, add some Cajun spice.
Test to see if they are done by tasting them! If they are soft then they are done the way most in SC like them. If still crunchy and you like them like that, you're good to go. I don't like mine slimy but slightly firm.
For saltier peanuts, leave in the salt water and strain them to serve.
There you go. Serve these for the next football game and wait for the reaction. You'll either be praised for culinary brilliance or hear a lot of gagging noises.
