Boiled Peanuts~ (Goober Peas)
Oh my...here I go again...off on a winding road of trivia and nonsense!
I find it so funny in Internet contacts with people- how we get sent off on searches, with the least prompting...LOL-Well- I do anyway.
I was talking with a friend online yesterday and our conversation somehow got into nuts...(the kinds we like and do not like)...and peanuts came into it, of course. The peanut, as most people know, is not a nut but a member of the Pea family...but is highly used as a nutty snack - and liked a lot!
Being from the south I know about 'Boiled Peanuts', too, but my friend had never heard of them! ...So of course this sent me off on a search, today!
As I suspected, 'Boiled Peanuts' are of the southern states!
*This website is very interesting and informative!*
This old song was also mentioned so I searched Youtube and found this!
:) I had not thought of this song in decades!
I have fond memories and good thoughts about boiled peanuts because my sweet mom loved them. No finer treat could you give her than a bag of boiled peanuts from a roadside fruit and veggie stand!
...funny how your memories wander...
