Something Boiled For My Bride

I'm taking a side trip to help out a buddy and spot a quaint little road-side farmer's stand. Fresh fruits and veggies straight out of the Earth and a special treat. Something boiled for my bride. I think this is strictly a Southern thing, too. Boiled peanuts! The woman running the stand was simmering them in a crockpot all day. $3 for a pound. Of course she didn't have a scale and "a pound" turned out to be four scoups from a huge ladel. I'm sure it was closer to two pounds. But maybe water-sogged peanuts weigh more and I got the short end of the stick? They weren't for me, anyway. My bride will get a big kick out of them.
