Can shelled raw peanuts be boiled?
Thanks for the article.
We cannot get raw peanuts in their shells in the UK. The ones in shells are always roasted and ready to eat, sold in bags. Could you use shelled raw peanuts, which are easily obtainable over here?
Also, I don't like to add any salt to my food at all, including my home made bread and cheese which taste just fine to me. Has anybody tried boiling the peanuts without salt to see how they turn out? I don't mind giving it a try. I know that they say you should not add salt to the water when you boil foods like dried beans and other legumes, because it toughens the skins and takes longer to cook them.
Maybe they would soften quicker?
