Do you like nuts in your food i.e quick breads, cookies, brownies, ice cream, salads, etc.

You know, I almost put in the original post something like, "Yes, I am asking if you like nuts."   But I didn't, figuring someone else would pick up my slack.   And no one did.   Until you brought it up, Susan.  See- I told you all I wasn't the most dirty minded one here.

An entire post about liking to eat nuts or not and no one went "there".  To say I'm shocked may be putting it mildly.

Yes, that's how they are served- in warm in water.   You can spice up the water to make Cajun boiled peanuts too.

I had them at a Hyman's in Charleston, South Carolina. They came with everyone's meals (kind of like tortilla chips & salsa at a Mexican restaurant). They were warm and sitting in a liquid. Is that how your friend serves them? I would be willing to try again.

You boil the green, or not yet mature, ones.   You say soggy, I say delicious.   I am not anti-peanut, just anti-peanuts as a dessert food.   Maybe I need to get my friend to boil us up some for the next summer get-together.

I LOVE nuts in cookies and brownies, banana bread, ice cream, etc.....walnuts, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, peanuts. Not as big a fan of pecans.

What I DON'T like baked into stuff is raisins. Raisins are good raw - on cereal, in trail mix, but not cooked. Don't even like them in oatmeal - they should not be warm.

I have heard of boiled peanuts, but have never had them.

Yes, love nuts of any kind. Ray used to eat pistachios by the bagful but they almost always send him to the emergency room every time. He has diverticulitis and has to steer clear of them now.
