Also, don't be taken in by those selling canned or shrink wrapped or without any 'juice' (water) included in the peanuts. Your grocer may be selling these, and with no shipping charges. Look for these on Ebay also. These are NOT the same. Anyone selling these do not understand, or may have never even tasted genuine freshly boiled peanuts.

The majority of peanuts grown in the United States are dried before being processed then sold to packaging, processor and feed companies, with most ending up as peanut butter. The bulk of whats left winds up in candy or as roasted peanuts,also known as parched, salted and unsalted. There are however, a niche of consumers who have discovered the joys of the peanut before it is dried. These are your boiled peanut fans. Although a dried peanut can still be called raw, it cannot be termed green. Only peanuts fresh from the ground have that honor, albiet the peanut is not actually green in color.
Green peanuts are often not easy to locate as they are perishable and must be refridgerated or frozen whereas dried peanuts have a shelf life of literally months. Left at room temperature a green peanut will begin to deteriorate within just a week or two. They also have a relatively short season making them even more rare and perhaps more sought after by those who have developed a taste for genuine southern boiled peanuts. Boiling green peanuts insures maximum flavor for the boiled peanut fan.
Consumers of boiled peanuts much prefer fresh green peanuts or frozen green peanuts brought back to a boil, rather than some type of dried or canned boiled peanuts. Freezing does not seem to harm the flavor at all. Roadside vendors are where most Americans were first introduced to boiled peanuts, and it was probably in either Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama or South Carolina. South Carolina has even declared the boiled peanut its official state snack, thanks to Govenor Mark Sanford in 2006.
