Raw (Green) Peanuts

AJSoprano Feb 3, 2012 08:19 PM

Just came back from South Carolina and discovered the joy of boiled peanuts!

Anyone have any leads on where to find raw peanuts? Would prefer not to order them online.

    Iovine's at the Reading Market has had them in the past. I have also seen them at Scott & Judy's in the Italian Market.

      Not sure where to buy the raw ones but they are serving boiled peanuts at The Khyber--been on the specials board for months. Anyone tried them?
