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 was born and raised in Alabama, and joined the Army in 2000. I have since been stationed at Ft. Carson, Colorado twice, spent 3 years in Germany, and have just recently finished my 3rd tour of duty in Iraq. Boiled peanuts were a very important staple of my diet growing up in the south, so I figured that I would soon be going through boiled peanut "withdrawals" after leaving Alabama for a military career!! haha This website came to my attention a little over a year after I left the south, and has since become my constant supply of one of my favorite foods... BOILED PEANUTS!!!! I have since purchased several different products in addition to the peanuts, from this website, and "Nuts Online" has yet to disappoint!! If you ever need to find any kind of healthy snacks, candies that you enjoyed growing up and just can't seem to find in the store anymore, or even healthy alternatives for your children's snacks, then look no further than this website, because chances are you'll find everything you're looking for, and even somethings that you weren't!! Keep up the GREAT work guys, and Thanks for the years of excellent service!!”

“I cannot get enough of these Boiled Peanuts, I was in Georgia for 2 weeks and I ate at least 3 big cups full each day by the time I got back home I did not realize it but my kids said Mommy you lost weight... and my clothes were very loose as well. I found Nuts online and they have a customer for life... I wish they sold them in bigger Cans!”

“We adopted a soldier and send him boxes of goodies each month. When I asked him if there was anything special I could send he only asked for one thing - Roddenberrys Green Boiled Peanuts. Thank goodness for your website because I don't think Denver knows what a boiled peanut is.
