Thread Name: BS: Whatever happened to salted peanuts?
Subject: RE: BS: Whatever happened to salted peanuts?
When I was living in South Carolina through most of 2007, I became a fan of "bald peanuts." Bald, of course, is the southern way of saying boiled. They are boiled in their shells in a pressure cooker. I don't know about whites, but blacks in the area ate them like there was no tomorrow. The guy I was working the most closely with was black and he brought me bald peanuts everyday.

It was funny because we were working with this cute little blonde gal and we'd eat bald peanuts and those obnoxious little franks that you get in those tins by Armour Starr--straight out of the can. She would just about vomit watching us.
