Best Alternative to a Boiled Peanut

Fried Peanut

The farmers' market peanut guys have been hawking these for a while, and we figured they'd be good — what fried food isn't? But it wasn't until the Mt. Pleasant holiday market that we finally tried a free sample. "Eat the whole thing — shell and all," the guy said. So we did and we discovered that fried peanuts are as unique as the boiled ones. The fibrous shell becomes crunchy (hopefully digestible) and provides a satisfying snack, without all that annoying shell detritus. Now we brake for fried peanuts, too.
