Boiled Peanuts in Phoenix? (No, I'm serious.)

Twi_prime | Aug 9, 2006 06:45 AM

Hi folks. I've recently moved here from not-quite-*as*-sunny Florida, where one beloved summer snack is boiled peanuts. We start with raw, green peanuts (green meaning, I guess, that they're not entirely ripe yet). We cover 'em with water, salt the heck out of 'em and boil them until the peanut inside the shell is tender and either a rosy pink or purple. In my opinion, really wonderful. I *think* I saw the right kind of peanuts for this at Sprouts. Can anyone suggest another place I could get them? Ideally, I want to stay away from 'jumbo' peanuts, since they just don't seem as good for this as the smaller ones.

Thanks for reading! :)
