I love boiled peanuts! Being from Georgia, it's something you start out eating before you can walk! We do grow peanuts here, but in my opinion they are not very good boiled, too mushy. I like mine a little crunchy. I buy them by the 25 pound bag off the internet and they come from New Mexico! They are called valencia peanuts. I boil them and put them in gallon freezer bags and in to the freezer they go. I like them cold or hot. I've recently been experimenting with adding chili peppers while they are boiling. Not bad, but the plain are my favorite. My daughter lives in Utah and I recently sent her 20 lbs. She said some people love them while others are just grossed out. LOL!
