How to Boil Green Peanuts

A traditional snack in the south is boiled green peanuts. These peanuts are not actually green. It is a term used to refer to fresh peanuts. Rinse your peanuts off and add them to a pot of water. The water must be at least two inches higher than all of your peanuts. Add one cup of salt to the water. Bring the water to a boil and continue boiling for four hours. You may have to add some more water a few times to keep the water level above the peanuts. Drain the water, shell the peanuts, and enjoy.
