"Nilagang Mani" (Boiled Peanuts)

A peanut is a common legume also known as a groundnut. It is eaten plain or roasted and sold in salted and unsalted varieties. It is used to make peanut butter and peanut oil.

You'll need:
  • about 2 kilos of freshly picked peanuts
  • water
  • 2-3 tbsps rock salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Here's how:

Wash the peanuts several times under running water until all the dirt is gone.

In a large thick bottom casserole, put the peanuts. Add the salt and brown sugar. Level with water. Mix. Cover. Bring to boil. Then, decrease fire to low. Simmer for 35-45 minutes, depending on your desire tenderness. I like it soft but still a little crunchy (",)
