Epicurean Kentuckian: Hopes Hot Boiled Peanuts will catch on here

Cooked Adair County-grown peanuts inside - and they were just as good

By Maury E Lewis

I am from the Deep South and these are grown every where down there. They are cooked and sold on the side of the roads. "Hot boiled peanuts" all you need is lots of salt and hot, hot water.

When I got mine the other day Bill put them on to boil on the stove, I prefer to do them outside, but they tasted just as good from the stove top as they do from a big fire outside we have been eating and enjoying them for two days.

Maybe they will catch on up here and people will try to grow more of them. melewi - Maury E Lewis Comments re photo 47135 Something you dont see here everyday Adair Co peanuts
