OK, so laugh at us northerners. A friend ordered another friend 7.5 lbs of unshelled peanuts for a holiday gift. They tasted it and thought they were horrible. So he called and said these nuts were bad and they sent another 7.5lb bag....they said they were horrible as well.

I show up and they have me try one from each bag....bland. I tell them they taste (at least what I think, never having them) that they are raw peanuts. Blank stares at my way "WTF" is that?

They are ready to dump 15lbs of these on the lawn for the wildlife... I know there is something more we can do?

Boiled, roasted...let me know? point me to threads, recipes anything....TY
 
If they are truly raw, I would boil them. Nothing like boiled peanuts. I boil mine with salt, old bay seasoning, Tony C's, etc. Low boil for a few hours, and keep tasting, until you like them. I like mine a little mushy.
Bag says Raw...please elaborate on the time and recipe? I am a New Yorker and no idea...lol

Try the boiled peanuts on a small scale to start; they're not for everyone. My wife wanted to try them from a roadside stand in Georgia on a drive back from Florida a few years back. She got a few pounds in different flavors. We ended up dumping them all at the next rest stop, just couldn't get past the texture, and didn't care for the flavors.

Admittedly, we're northerners, and I know these are big in the south, but we just hadn't acquired the taste.

I love roasted peanuts.
 
Is that supposed to be some sort of secret code? :emoji_astonished:
Not so secret! As S Smoke-Chem BBQ stated not all things southerners really like are liked by northerners! Just as Jake can't stand the thought of eating ground round. But in our little town I had to put an order in for ground round...he had many pounds to grind for new years! Been that popular for years around here.

Now what was this thread about? Oh yeah, what to do with raw peanuts. Carry on.
 
Boiled is always an option! My sister had (not sure if she still does) a big blue macaw and an african grey and they loved raw peanuts so if you know anyone with birds I'm sure they'll take some.
