Creamy Peanut Soup

National Peanut Day is here! How much do we love peanuts, let me count the ways! This recipe calls for boiled peanuts and I have a bounty of them packed in our freezer, just thaw, heat and eat, it’s just that simple and so good for you. Learned about boiled peanuts when I first migrated south to Florida and have enjoyed them ever since. When I first heard of them, I was kinda leary knowing only of Planter’s Peanuts in a jar or can, they were the only way us Yankees ate them except for in cookies or candy. Our son-in-law Scott, living in Indiana now, has his folks pick up raw green peanuts when they’re down here visiting so he can enjoy them year round in a part of the country that is naive to what they are. So if you have never had this tasty treat and you get to Georgia or Florida, be sure to try them! This recipe is just simplicity at it’s best!

Love em!

  1. Can’t believe a southern gal doesn’t care for boiled peanuts, but if you like peanut sauces, you should like this! Thanks for the comment Bonnie!

  2. Hey Regina, I’m a Southern gal, but never cared for boiled peanuts. Revealing my age, I remember when people dropped a few salted, roasted peanuts into their bottle of coke (some probably used boiled ones)…I loved that, but haven’t tried doing that in a long while. Past few years, I’ve updated to dropping chocolate-covered coffee beans into my coffee…guess that’s the new norm!

    I do love peanut sauces, so I imagine I would love this soup…thanks for sharing!
