Can we talk about boiled peanuts? I do not understand. Maybe southerners are genetically predisposed to like them? Of course I had to find out more, and with the help of my semi-southern friend, I entered the world of peanut boiling! There's even a song.

Let me tell you facts about boiled peanuts. All you have to do is take "raw" peanuts in their shells, put them in a pot covered with water, and throw some salt in there. Then boil them. For hours and hours until they turn mushy and gross looking. A bill has been signed making boiled peanuts the official snack food of South Carolina. Boiled peanuts have four times the antioxidants of normal peanuts cause the nutrients are drawn out of the shell and into the nut. Healthy! Boiled peanuts are enjoyed in Vietnam, China, India, and many other countries.
