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'm a southern gal who is stuck in the snow of the North right now. Nothing comforts my heart ache when I'm missing the South like a warm bowl of boiled peanuts. I am so happy that I found this website! If I mention boiled peanuts up here in the North, these Yankees look at me like I've lost my mind! They can keep their fancy edamame and green tea - nothing will ever top a cold glass of super sweet tea and hot boiled peanuts!!! Thanks ya'll!”

“I am from Florida too...and one thing I remember as a kid was boiled peanuts. We would stop at the road side vendors and get a warm bag of them. I remember my father saying "the best deal in the south is boiled peanuts at any price".”

“This is nuts! I'm a northerner with the acquired taste of a southerner. For those who know about boiled peanuts, they know its a "southern delicacy". When I searched boiled peanuts I was surprised to see this web-site. Without any hesitation I ordered 12 cans of green boiled peanut patch, boiled peanuts, the kind my grandmother gave me as a snack when I was just a young boy visiting her floridian retreat. I am so excited, now I can give my friends a taste that reminds me of my wonderful childhood days! Thanks nuts online, you've triggered old memories that without you would not have been possible!”

“I'm pretty much a peanut freak! Living in the north I've always had a hard time finding boiled peanuts so one day I did a online search and found Nuts online. When ordering the boiled, I also added salted in the shells. I found a major difference with yours compared to what I find in the local stores. Flavor and freshness are by far better as well as the price! It's been great dealing with Nuts online, Pete”
