Raw/green peanuts in Chinatown?

jen223 | Nov 6, 2012 02:16 PM

I bought some raw peanuts from the farmers market last weekend and boiled them. Love boiled peanuts, but a lot of the nuts were rotten/moldy. I remember the fruit stands in Chinatown offering them at certain times of the year for super cheap. Anyone know if raw peanuts are there now for me to buy and boil in massive quantities? It IS peanut season, right? Given the colder weather and the post-hurricane lack of subway in my neighborhood, I don't want to make the trek to come back peanut-less.

Any other variations to boiling them in salt and frying the boiled ones in duck fat (yum!) are also welcome. Good peanut fat cancels out bad duck fat, right?
