Boiled Green Peanut is Good for Health

Green peanuts with shell

We start to see peanuts sold at the farmer market around end of February each year in the southern USA (Alabama, Louisiana and Georgia), but look abundance from June to September with a little bit lower price. 

Surprisingly, the market for this crop is quite significant with total market value of US$4 billion in the US. Reasonably good for economic activities. About 700 million pounds produced per year. Georgia is the state that most produces peanuts. 

The peanut growing season from April to October, depend on kinds of peanuts, and harvest could be 4 to 5 months after sowing the seeds. A plant may contain 50 peanuts. Sold in the market in a pound or a bushel (20 pound). The sellers called it green peanut, even though the color of peanut’s shell is not green at all.

If we (I myself) buy peanuts, we simply just boil it. Freshly peanuts are boiled with water contain a proper amount of salt. Southerners love to have salty boiled peanuts. It takes several hours before bean texture reach softly and taste delicious. 

We eat boiled peanuts with crawfish for sometimes, but we often eat boiled peanut only. Peanuts harvest season is coincidentally with crawfish. If we have crawfish party, then we eat crawfish with peanuts and potatoes.   

Peanut is good for health, it is because contain protein (plant-based protein), rich in mineral and vitamin. Eating peanuts may also reduce risks of gallstone and heart diseases. Thus, it is a good diet for obese people.

  5. I enjoy peanuts but I've never eaten boiled peanuts. What makes them different compared with the others? Is it the salt? I also haven't eaten crayfish. I can see them in the ditches. Are they the same ones that you were talking about? Oh well, have a great Wednesday Tanza. See ya.

  7. I've never seen them bagged like this. I wonder if the green peanut would be the same as what you see in a health food store. I'd love to do this and can't get enough of the shelled ones.
