Since moving to the South, I’ve noticed a few items on the shelves at the grocery store that one normally doesn’t encounter in the Northern States. Items like Boiled Peanuts, Muscadines, Chit’lins, Gumbo, Jambalaya and Grapico are all items that were once (and some are still) unfamiliar to me.
Recently I encountered a bag of Deep Fried Peanuts that claim to be so good you could eat them ‘shell and all’. Hmmm…since my husband loves peanuts, I decided to pick up a bag. I couldn’t bring myself to eat the entire shell but there was someone in our house that thought he’d give it a try. And no it wasn’t my husband. Here’s a hint…
Does he look guilty to you?
We arrived home after church to discover nearly an entire bag of Deep Fried Peanuts scattered all over the living room floor. I guess that’s what we get for leaving the bag in reach of the dog?
It seems that he liked them better than the rest of us, even if he did seem to mope around a bit later in the day.
I have no idea what fresh Deep Fried Peanuts would taste like, but imagine that they’d be quite a bit better than the bagged version we tried that I thought were a bit too greasy.
Peanuts + Grease = a bad combination (in my humble opinion, of course).
So, what kind of delicacies (delicious or not) do you have in your neck of the woods that may not be found in other corners of our world?
