 Deep fried peanuts in shell

Deep fried peanuts in shell Tue, 01/15/08 12:09 PM (permalink)
I purchased an unusual snack yesterday. I was in the University of Tennessee book store and I saw deep fried peanuts in the shell that were salted. You can eat the shells and all. Apparently the process of deep frying them renders the shell edible. They were salted and very good. My ugly dog even liked them. The company was Uncle Bud's out of Chattanooga, TN

    I've been eating salted-in-the shell peanuts, shell and all, for over forty years. Deep frying them may make them taste better or make the shells easier to chew. I can't imagine subjecting myself to that horrid color of orange, so perhaps I'll look for them somewhere else.

        I agree that they are fibrous but tasty.

        I recall Fred Sauceman discussing it on his website. He bought them in Myrtle Beach.

          I too occasionally eat both shell and peanut.

            I too eat roasted in-the-shell peanuts, shell and all. Although, I usually mix it up. sometimes eating the whole thing, other times not. It all depends how much fiber I want in my mouth while watching the Nationals from the 400 section.

              These are not roasted in the shell but deep fried in the shell. They are salted afterwards. They are very tasty.

                Paul, I think we were all reacting to your comment that it "renders the shell edible". I guess we all thought you could eat the shells deep fried or not.

                  Indicating that the shells were edible. they are edible. A little bit fibrous but very good and salty.
