Boiled Peanuts

Order now, we'll ship monday, sep 22

Boiled peanuts are a tasty snack and a favorite food of the South. Their distinct salty taste comes from boiling green peanuts, still in the shell, in salt water. The boiling process releases flavors and nutrients from the peanut shell, making the nuts soft, fresh, and flavorful. Our boiled peanuts are canned only hours after being picked, so they retain their delicious taste.

How to Eat Boiled Peanuts

Our boiled peanuts come from the popular Margaret Holmes Peanut Patch brand, in 7.5 oz dried weight cans (these used to be called Roddenberry). To enjoy the boiled peanuts, drain the brine from the can and shell the peanuts. For extra flavor, try heating the peanuts in the liquid after opening the can.

Boiled Peanuts Nutrition

1. Boiled peanuts contain more antioxidants than roasted or raw peanuts. A 2007 study conducted by researchers from Alabama A&M University's Department of Food and Animal Sciences found that boiled peanuts bring out up to four times more phytochemicals that help protect against disease than raw, dry or oil-roasted nuts. These phytochemicals have antioxidant qualities that protect cells against the risk of degenerative diseases, including cancers, diabetes and heart disease.

2. Boiled peanuts support a healthy heart. Boiled Peanuts contain resveratrol, a plant chemical also found in red wine, which studies have shown to have a protective effect against cancer and heart disease. A 2013 study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine found that resveratrol still remains effective even after the body has metabolized it. The lead researcher of this study believes that this regeneration effect could be beneficial in treating a wide variety of human diseases.

3. Boiled peanuts are an excellent source of nutrients. Our peanuts are loaded with many vitamins and minerals and are high in plant protein. Also, the fat content is primarily the good kind which includes monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. According to the American Heart Association, replacing saturated and trans fat with unsaturated fat as part of a healthy diet can help lower LDL “bad” cholesterol levels.

A Tasty Tradition

Boiled peanuts have been a cultural tradition of the Southern United States since at least the Civil War, when Confederate soldiers would use salt water to boil and preserve the "goober peas" they were given as rations. Today, these peanuts are still extremely popular in the South, and were even proclaimed the official snack food of South Carolina in 2006. During the summer months, families, neighbors, and friends throughout the South often gather to boil peanuts together and enjoy them outdoors over a cold drink.

“I served in the US Navy from 83 to 89. Three of those years were spent in Beaufort SC. That is where I first tried Boiled Peanuts. Once you've had boiled peanuts, you'll never forget it. I looked online, to hopefully, find a supplier of the incredible treat. Nuts Online came up first and had great reviews. So I thought I'd give them a try. So glad I did, and also purchased two batches of the Veggie Chips ( my wife can't stop eating them). Great service, and reasonable delivery time by fedEx. I would absolutley recommend Nuts Online to my friends and family.”

“Years ago I was in Florida and bought a can of boiled peanuts. Loved them so bought a case. Hadn't been back in so long, always loved the boiled peanuts so thought I would look on line. Sure enough, and they are the exact brand I had so long ago. As soon as they arrived I had to open a can. The Years melted away and I was in Heaven. So glad I can get them on line. Now will never be without them for long. And the vegetable chips you sent were out of this world awesome. Too bad too little, the wife and I were fighting over them. Now there is something else I have to order. Will have to be a steady customer now.”

“Boiled peanuts! We live way up north, and rarely get far enough south to get any boiled peanuts. It finally occurred to me to buy them online, and we are thrilled!! Finally we can have them whenever we want!”

, Petoskey, MI July 28, 2011

“Thanks Nuts Online ! My order arrived just as promised !

I'll be ordering again soon to replenish my boiled green peanuts in the kitchen pantry.

I noticed that the cans have a pull tab opening, no can opener needed ! These will surely be included on my next camping trip.

I loved the suggestion on the can that says warm them, never knew that (I lived in FL and always bought them fresh boiled but cold in a brown sack from a little roadside stand).

Mmm- They will be a great snack warmed over the campfire!”
