The characteristics of boiled peanuts are different from those processed by any other method. The kernels have a firm, slightly gelatinous texture, are moist yet crunchy, with a mild nutty flavor. The seed coats are gray in color with prominent veins. Boiled peanuts may be served as they are, as a party or between meal snack, used to add flavor and crunch to salads, casseroles, poultry stuffing or other prepared dishes. They also are an excellent ingredient replacement for water chestnuts.
