Camping and fishing in good ole Colorado last weekend we brought a bag of roasted peanuts. We also had a plastic water bottle filled with Tequila. Needless to say by the end of the trip I thought I had a restaurant concept, Tequila and Peanuts.
Anyways all this talk about nuts…such protein packed little suckers are a great addition to any backpackers load not to mention to any cocktail party. After the tequila peanut chaser camping event I was also reminded of one of my favorite southern snacks, Boiled Peanuts!
Whoa dude, hang ten in my mouth! First time I tasted this soft and salty little nut I was sitting on Folly Beach in Charleston, SC after an attempted surf session letting the sun dry me while I gulped down a cold beer. Once the sweet taste of the boiled raw peanut hit my lips I was done for…”Feels so good when it hits your lips….we’re going streaking”!
Warning:Eat enough boiled peanuts while drinking a cold cocktail and you really will be streaking! Great you say, well then check out this recipe Boiled Peanuts
