A Little South Georgia Delicacy

This is my pre- and post-dinner tonight: boiled peanuts, a South Georgia specialty. Which is addicting.

We're smack in the middle of peanut (and Vidalia onion) country and these babies sell like potato chips in Tybee Island.

Margie, who grew up eating these babies says they are simple to make (boil and salt), but you need to watch them closely and taste them occasionally. My mother used to boil a big pot of peanuts when Dad went out to see the Augusta Crackers, a Southern Association baseball team in the 1950s. We lived in Augusta at the time and even then, it was the armpit of civilization.
