Ontario Roasted Peanuts
We went to Ceili Cottage last week and noshed on some yummy Ontario peanuts; they were smaller and more tasty than the average grocery store peanut. I had no idea that peanuts are locally grown.
Can anyone recommend where I can find some? Specifically, shelled, salted roasted peanuts?
Darn, I thought maybe I could order them online because they have a picture of a shopping cart at the top of the screen that would lead you to believe it... but then it just goes to a page saying "Call us".. wonder what it costs for shipping.. i'm not sure where i'd be able to buy something like this in Peel
I don't imagine that shipping would cost that much. But you might want to give them a call and ask if their products are distributed somewhere in Peel region. I've bought their peanuts at their farm in Norfolk County, as well as in Toronto and a farm store north of Barrie (although I haven't seen them there this summer).
They really are the best peanuts I've ever tasted. They're a variety of Valencia called Garroy, which was developed at the University of Guelph. They're red-skinned and very small, with a sweetness and crispness I've not found in any other peanuts. I usually buy really large bags, which I store in the freezer.
