A friend once told me that one of her fondest childhood
memories was eating boiled peanuts at her grandmother's house.
Her problem was that she never quite learned to prepare peanuts
like her Granny. You see, she never had fresh green peanuts to
boil. You have to have new green peanuts that will boil up
nice and soft.
Wash the peanuts in the shell and put into a saucepan.
Add enough water to cover. Add salt (1/4 cup of salt to a
quart of peanuts). Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and
simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Add water as needed to keep
peanuts covered. Shell a few peanuts at the end of cooking
time and taste. More salt may be needed. Drain the peanuts
and serve. Shell peanuts and enjoy.
Boiled peanuts in the shell can be frozen in freezer- 
safe storage bags or containers for up to 1 year.
