Archive for the ‘boiled peanuts’ Category

It’s time for some boiled peanuts so I called my brother David for his recipe. Dave makes the best danged boiled peanuts…. ever.

“First you have to soak ’em overnight,” he instructed by telephone. I poured out the vat of hot boiling water that I’d already prepared and changed it to cold.

“They’ll float to the top,” he added. They did. “Put something like a plate on top of them to hold them down.” My plates were either too large or too small but this bowl that used to belong to my mom was just right. It’s from the 1950’s, by the way, and I love it. Mom served hot veggies or cold potato salad in it. It always reminds me of her in her apron and those wonderful meals she used to make…

but I’m supposed to be blogging about boiled peanuts… oops… got carried away….

Well, mom’s vintage bowl wasn’t quite heavy enough so I added this:

A glass straw dispenser. Perfect. All the little nuts are snuggled in for the night. Tomorrow I’ll post the cooking process! Ninja Man had better get ready for some scrumptious boiled peanuts!
