What Are Boiled Peanuts?
Boiled peanuts have all the health benefits of roasted peanuts, with four times the antioxidants. Because of the water weight, they also make you feel full. So, they're not only a healthy snack. They'll also satisfy your hunger.
Boiled peanuts are a common snack throughout the Southeastern United States, stretching along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, from North Carolina to South Carolina, Georgia, northern Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi. Roadside stands line the highways selling boiled peanuts. This typical Southern street food boils in salt water for several hours to reach the desired tenderness.
Although this tasty legume is well known in the U.S. as a Southern treat, boiled peanuts are actually a common snack enjoyed all over the world. In Hawaii, boiled peanuts are served as an appetizer. You can also find this delicious snack in China and India, being served up by street vendors. The boiled peanut is known as a "ground nut" in parts of Africa, but it is usually served al dente.
