It’s boiled peanut season! Praise the lard, the markets are flooded with green peanuts. Second only perhaps to the arrival of tomato season this is as excited as I get about produce.

If you’ve never had a boiled peanut you’re missing out. They’re the perfect food to enjoy on your back porch in the newly cool weather, cracking the shells and slurping out the soft and salty peanut. That’s where I’ll be until Christmas.
