Tell me about it! Do you like to shell peanuts? I do like to shell boiled peanuts but only to throw them straight into my mouth. It’s shell and eat, shell and eat way of enjoying peanuts boiled or roasted unshelled. The peanuts I have now are raw, unshelled but not no longer fresh because I brought them with me from Davao last year. I thought they were dry and rotten already but I was surprised I could still eat them. I noticed that the older it gets, the tastier it becomes, lol! It seemed to taste like a roasted peanut in a sense.
I have something to thank for for the peanuts because it gives me an idea to bake brownies perhaps this weekend to complement my failed chocolate cake. I firmly believe that the key to success is try and try. Hahaa! Back to the peanuts, I started to shell them so they’d be ready in case I would need to roast them before using. I couldn’t help but to eat some while I was shelling but I tried to resist the temptation or I would end up baking brownies without nuts. You would have noticed that not all peanuts were shelled yet. I like to shell peanuts but it’s not a job I would recommend. Not even as a hobby or past time activity. It was tiring and tedious and the intention not to eat them was a bore. The job was almost done but I had to stop cos I got bored and sleepy. Or is it long way to get done? Anyhow, I won’t need all these peanuts for a mixture of brownies. I don’t think so…

Aww, you don’t have to. 😀
I love peanut too! But not this kind of peanut but the “Peanut” of Jeff Dunham. This guy is really talented and Peanut is soooo funny!
I do love peanuts too but I like the boiled one with shells. I don’t like the fried one because it’s oily.
.-= Renz´s last blog ..My baby’s first words =-.
Well, I like to nibble the fried one than the boiled. I can understand why some don’t like oil on peanuts.
I like those shelled peanuts since it doesn’t contained any salt on it.

Oh, but the water must have salt when boiling, though it doesn’t really make the peanuts salty.
wow ate this is the month of which you indulge yourself with cooking. I’m not really into peanuts since I do believe that it cause pimples. So yeah I hate pimples.

Garlic! It’s what exactly I like on fried peanuts. I really miss our peanuts. Here, I can’t find one with garlic.
dyan mo masasabi…. “onli in the philippines!” dito kahit saang kanto ata may nag titinda… yung tipong ali alikabok pa…. hahahahaha… pero parang mas masarap sya ng nilalako lang… kesa sa mga sealed na binebenta sa groceries…
Hilig ko ring bumili ng mani sa kanto, hehee!
My sister sent me two packs of fried peanut na dumating last week. Hindi nga masarap ang nabibili sa groceries, pero kinakain ko pa rin. Wala kasing iba. 🙂
I love peanuts too! I can eat it raw, I think I like it even better when eaten raw, as long as it’s fresh! 😀 at syempre, boiled peanuts din.

Yes, friend, and the raw peanuts I have now taste like roasted because it’s old but not rotten. It’s been ages since I ate raw peanuts fresh.
first of all the spam protection asked, sum of 5 + 9 ? i thought it was fifteen and i second guessed it’s thirteen but was wrong on both. goodness.
anyhoo, I. Love. Peanuts. most especially if they’re raw, and they just came fresh from harvest. not really directly-from-the-soil freshness but the just-dried-in-the-sun ones. 🙂 i love it cuz it’s milky and soft! 😀
.-= fetus´s last blog ..Cooling Off =-.
I guess you and I need a calculator, hahaa!
Oww, I really miss fresh peanuts from harvest. It’s hard to find now in Davao. And tastes really good.
