I like listening to the hit or miss engines they are coolI usually go to the Peanut Festival with my dad. He loves looking at the tractors and reminiscing.
I was over 50 before I decided that I like boiled peanuts. Love em raw or roasted.
Oh yeah! I loves me some antique machinery. :thumbsup:I like listening to the hit or miss engines they are cool
That's what my dad and I like to do also. He grew up farming. He loves to show me old machinery. And I love to see and hear how they work. Hit and miss engines are fun.I like listening to the hit or miss engines they are cool
Till they're done. Not really a good average time really. I have had them cook for short times and long times. Depends on how much you do, how green/dry they are etc... It's part of the fun to sit around checking them for softness and saltyness. I am going to have to get me a bunch to do up soon. We'll be up at the Jay peanut festival too.Not to derail the machinery conversation, but how long do y'all boil the peanuts for? Last year was the first time I boiled, and it seemed like it took forever. Any hints ?
Ahhh, I didn't know I had to soak them. Thanks.soak peanuts overnite, always,
green take about 3-4 hrs
dry take about 8
It's not necessary, but they'll take longer to cook if you don't. I don't when I cook them. I don't have the patience to wait a whole night before cooking them. I rinse them off really good with the hose, then do a "cleaning" boil with just salt and water for 3-4 hours. After that I add the spices/salt and boil for a while longer`. :thumbsup:Ahhh, I didn't know I had to soak them. Thanks.
