Ah, Nuts!!!

When I went in search of things made in the U.S.A., I really was NOT going to focus on food. After all, I'm married to a farmer. Producing food is what he does. But, in this case, I simply could not help myself. This is a U.S.A. product that I've been so in love with over the years, that to not mention it would be a sin.

Virginia Diner peanuts! These are amazing!
My hubby has family that lives out on the east coast. Whenever we visit, someone usually makes a run to the diner where they sell these. (I usually order mine on-line from home because I simply cannot run out of the yummy goodness.) But I think it's fair to say, had I not married this wonderful man, I would still be ignorant of the joy of these peanuts.
Who knew marriage could bring such pea nutty bliss?
I think why their peanuts are so good is because of the "blistering." No, I have no idea how they blister a peanut. All I know is that it makes them super extra crunchy and delicious.
Oh, and coincidentally, March is "national peanut month."
And have I mentioned that George Washington Carver is a hero of mine? It just makes sense that I should show homage to him and to peanuts. Specifically, these peanuts, but then I never met a peanut I didn't like...
If you want to read about the history of these peanuts that they've been making since 1929, you can read here:
