Heating Instructions

This Southern treat has been shared throughout generations. Raw or green peanuts are traditionally boiled in salt water and eaten seasonally. As Southern transplants, we have been introducing boiled peanuts to South Texas since 2016. Using Texas grown peanuts, we have developed some delicious flavors and products to cater to our growing customer base. Whether this is a gift for someone or a gift for yourself, we hope you enjoy Lil’ Red’s Boiled Peanuts.   

 

All items are perishable and should be refrigerated (2-3 weeks) or frozen (up to 1 year).  You can enjoy boiled peanuts directly from the fridge or warmed.
