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.

“Thank you so much. I can't believe how quickly the boiled peanuts arrived. My Mother is from Cairo GA and has been craving them madly. She just mentioned them again today. Her birthday is January 7th and I am so happy to have them in time for her. She will be ecstatic. Thanks again for the speedy, accurate and efficient service. ”

“My husband was so tickled over the nuts (boiled peanuts) he says they are the best he's had in years thanks for making such great products.”

“Oh my gosh!!! I was almost brought to tears when I opened up my first can and took in a big whiff. The taste just took me back to many summers spent in my mother's hometown of Orangeburg, South Carolina. She met my father there when he was in the Army and he wisked her away to Texas where he lived. He died when I was ten years old and because my mother worked for the school district we spent many a summer at relative's houses in South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee shucking corn, snapping peas and eating boiled peanuts. These peanuts are so close to what I remember it's not even funny!!! Thanks for the memories and the wonderful peanuts! Yes, I will be ordering again and again and again.”

“I used to eat boiled peanuts as a kid growing up in Florida. I thought I could only get them when I went down there to visit, since they do not sell them in the stores up north. Now I found you guys and I can get them anytime I want. Sweet!”
David, Pryor, OK August 25, 2009
“I ordered 6 cans of boiled peanuts (regular) for my wife as a surprise. She's originally from Georgia and has been wanting boiled peanuts for some time. When she opened the package her face lit up like a kid at Christmas. She immediately opened a can, warmed them and proceeded to eat the whole can. She said they were absolutely delicious. Thanks "Nuts."”

“On the way to Myrtle Beach, SC this year, I saw a hot boiled peanuts sign on the side of the road, and fell in love again as I did when I first had boiled peanuts in Florida a decade ago. I live in Northern VA and am unable to find green peanuts to boil or boiled peanuts. I tried a six pack of green boiled peanuts in cans from Nuts Online. I received them so quickly, heated them up on the stove for a couple of hours because I like them soft, and I just ordered 24 cans. I can't wait to eat what I have been missing from the South for so long! Thank you Nuts Online! You found a customer for life!”
