ISO Raw Peanuts

Where can I find raw peanuts in the Boston area.I want to make boiled peanuts. I used to be able to buy them at Superior Nuts in E Cambridge but they only sell them in 25 lb packages now.

  1. I think I have seen them at Russo's in watertown and the co-op in Central Square. Maybe in the whole foods bulk bins?

    1. In fact, Superior will only sell them wholesale now. Refused to sell me that 25lb bag without a wholesale account. I was crushed when they made that change.

        I know how you feel. I used to be able to order a 1 lb bag and pick it up the next day. The people there were really nice

          They are still nice. They just won't sell us the peanuts! Did they indicate that they would sell you 25lbs? If so, should we get a group together to divide a large bag?

        1. I find them in most of the markets in Chinatown of source none whose names I know.
