Maryland Grown Peanuts

After curing (drying) for a little while, cracked some open to show what they look like inside. Again these are 'Black' and 'Bramling Pink' peanuts; both of which are normal color under the papery skin. I think they still need to cure a little longer. We roasted some fresh from the ground and because they were still spongy soft they ended up with a different texture after roasting - kind of a little crumbly. I'll let you know how the fully dried ones turn out when we roast 'em.

  1. Well, we've roasted three batches now and they're pretty tasty! I'll definitely be including these in the garden again next season. I might even try to interbreed them if it's not tremendously difficult.
