The final fate of the various boiled peanuts:
plain boiled peanuts in salted water
one pint smoked boiled peanut puree -- smoky, salty, fantastic, a soup base for some other time. The bacon of legumes. I might just thin it with broth and serve it on its own, or I might add dumplings or blue hubbard squash.
young peanuts cooked in coconut water with lime juice, ginger, and sriracha -- the winner of all the non-traditionals
peanuts boiled in Rogue chocolate stout -- fine but nothing to write home about, mostly a way to use up the stout
peanuts boiled with crawfish boil seasoning
young peanuts pickled with vinegar and Coca-Cola syrup
one pint or so, uncooked shelled green peanuts, frozen. Soup? Bean dip? Small portions of cassoulet? "Boston baked beans"? Chili? Refried beans? They're labor-intensive enough that I didn't want to shell more than this, so I can only really do one or two of the above.
Pay attention, pay attention, pay attention!
