Peanuts ( How To Boil Raw )

              Hello, welcome back here again with us this is Ken and Marilou with you all on Garden The Easy Way.

              Today we want to talk about Peanut, there are different ways to cook peanuts, but the healthiest is to boil your peanuts.  So many people all over the world are raising their own peanut.  Just about everyone love peanuts.    

              After you pull your peanut plant up out of the soil you will see lots of big clusters of peanuts, some people will  call them raw peanuts, and some people call them green peanuts that are hanging from the bottom of your plant, whichever you want to call it is OK, because it means the same thing ( uncooked peanuts ).

              Today we would like to tell you how to boil your peanuts, it is so quick and easy.  And they are so good eating, your family and all of your friends will love them.

              Cook to suit your taste, you can add a little salt or not any salt at all, you can cook peanuts to suit your taste.  Cooking time may vary because of the amount of water and peanuts you are cooking and how hot your cooker gets, but the time will run between 2 to 4 hours.  You can always pull 2 or 3 peanuts out after 1 hour of boiling and do a taste test.  

              The best way to cook your peanuts is to get a little LP Gas bottle with a burner and set it in your backyard and watch them cook.

1.  Hook up your LP Gas bottle to your gas burner.

2.  Get a big heavy pot, set it on the burner.

3.  Fill the pot up a little over half way with peanuts.  

4.  Add water above the peanut, don't worry if some peanuts float to the top. that is OK.

5.  Turn the burner on and start cooking.        

            Thank you all for being here today on Garden The Easy Way, this is Ken & Marilou, we hope to talk here tomorrow.  Until then, Good Gardening Always.
