Boiled or Roasted?

We're officially Southerners...apparently that's what happens to you when you eat your first boiled peanuts.  Remember, we're living in the Peanut Capital of the World, so we knew this Southern delicacy would be unavoidable.

 It has the consistency of a boiled potato.  "The peanut really isn't a nut", as we've been reminded over and over this weekend, "but an important part of the legume family".

A bit hesitant

Remember the old KIX commercial where they make Mikey try them first?...That's not what happened here, but he really did like them a lot.  I think this momma still prefers hers roasted, but it was worth a try.  How do you prefer your peanuts?
