Peanuts

      

 The peanut, or groundnut  is a species in the legume or “bean” family.  Peanuts are used in a lot of different ways,  Boiled roasted, fried, used as a sauce for meats and vegetables, cakes, peanut butter , candies, chocolates, and oil are a few examples.

In Uganda peanut soup is eaten with boiled matoka(green plantain bananas) as a main meal.  Boiled fresh peanuts are sold on the street as a snack as are roasted peanuts.  The locals make a cone using old newspaper and fill it with roasted peanuts and sell it.  When going to the movies we would buy a cone of peanuts before we went into the theatre.

In Canada we do not get the fresh peanuts so I buy the dried raw peanuts, soak them over night and then boil them.  These dried peanuts can be found in China Town, T & T Market and Osaka(Super Markets)

This is a good food to snack on when watching a movie or something to nibble on when you have a party.
