I just returned to Richland after being away for a couple of weeks... and while I'm unloading the truck, the neighbors show up and give me some boiled peanuts. And while I'd say these are by no means a typical Pacific Northwest snack, they are a treat. They're pretty darn good.
Salty, Soft, with a hint of Cayenne... This is where the Legume side of the peanut shines. They remind me of beans.
Except for the bit of peanut flavor.
