Peanuts, Peanuts, everywhere Peanuts

Have you ever seen peanuts straight from the ground ?







Of course everyone that knows me knows I love my boiled peanuts and it just so happens Miss Abbigail's daddy grows peanuts and soy beans so I considered myself a lucky girl when he sent a truck load for us to pick off, which is what we did Sunday evening with momma and daddy. We ended up with about 10 gallons. We washed them, boiled and now, sitting back and enjoying them .. Miss Joy I promise if you ever tasted one you wouldn't be able to control yourself ..lol



Thank you Mitchell they are so yummy
have a great evening ya'll

I'm going to add this to Miss Susan's Outdoor Wednesday so lets head on over and checkout all of the other wonderful blogs .


hugs, Cherry

  2. What a fun post. I don't know a darn thing about peanuts. Well, I know just a little and I learned it from Jimmy and Billy Carter:) I enjoy seeing photos of things I'll never see in my community.

  8. What fun to see the freshly harvested peanuts! I haven't had boiled peanuts...kind of partial to the crisp texture of the roasted ones... ??? One of these days I guess I will have to give them a try.

  9. You always learn something new in Blogland. How cool is this. By the time we taste peanuts they are probably pretty darned old.

  12. Love boiled peanuts too! When a Scot friend of mine first visited the US, he stayed with me in Atlanta and I introduced him to boiled peanuts; he went bonkers, couldn't believe how good they were. He took back to his office colleagues, CANNED boiled peanuts so they could experience them too. What fun!

  13. That looks like so much work. How many of you did it take to get the peanuts ready for the pot. I'll wager they delicious and worth every second it took to make them table ready. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  18. A "Peanut Boil" was a major event:
    When the peanuts were "ready" the neighbors would gather for the day to pick peanuts then boil them in a big iron wash pot.
    And sit around the fire that night eating them.

  19. Oh Man, I'm sooo jealous! Lucky you, Cherry! I think boiled is the best way to enjoy them!

  23. Oh, I love boiled peanuts and haven't had them since 1997 when we were on vacation in Gatlinburg, TN with my best friend and her husband. I can remember one of the kids in my class getting out of school about this same time of the year to help harvest peanuts. Since he was a kid that was beyond lazy, we didn't believe him until he bought the small bags of boiled peanuts to sell to school. 25 cents a bag..Yummy!

  24. I just read your article about peanuts and I could taste those hot boiled peanuts. Coming from the south and living in New Jersey for the last 12 years, I miss those simple things. These northern types do not know anything about boiled peanuts and think I am crazy for missing them.
