You can also cook them to your own taste. Our jumbo peanuts are a healthy treat that is high in protein, fiber, and heart-healthy nutrients.
How to Boil Raw Peanuts
Although these are not green peanuts, many people still love to boil them. Raw peanuts just need to be soaked overnight for at least 24 hours prior to boiling. Alternatively, you can enjoy them as a tasty snack or use them in recipes.
Ingredients: 1 pound fresh jumbo raw peanuts, 1/4 cup salt
Directions: Pour the raw peanuts and salt into a large pot over the stovetop. Cover the peanuts completely with water and bring to a boil. Let the water boil for one hour, up to three hours. Test the peanuts for doneness by cracking them open. If they are soft, they are finished. If they are still crunchy, you will need to cook them longer.
4 Surprising Health Benefits of Raw Peanuts
1) Improve Heart Health: Snacking on jumbo raw peanuts is great for your heart and overall health! A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (December 1999) showed that diets higher in monounsaturated fats from peanuts and peanut butter reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by 21% compared to the average American diet, whereas a low-fat diet reduced the risk by only 12%. Over 80 percent of the fat in peanuts comes from the “good” monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
2) Protein Powerhouse: A single one-ounce serving of raw peanuts provides a whopping seven grams of protein. The perfect post-workout snack, peanuts supply the protein your muscles need to recover and repair after exercise.
3) High in Fiber: Raw peanuts are also an excellent source of dietary fiber; they pack four grams of fiber per serving, including both forms: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber helps control blood sugar levels while insoluble fiber supports the digestive system.
4) Rich in Antioxidants: Consuming jumbo raw peanuts also provides your body with a rich source of antioxidants, which have been shown to protect cells against the oxidative damage linked to heart disease, stroke, and other chronic conditions. Peanuts contain a specific antioxidant called resveratrol, which is the same kind found in grapes and wine that has been shown to improve heart health and reduce excessive inflammation in the body.
