Boiled Peanuts with Star Anise

You can’t get any fresher than this. Straight off the branches, these peanuts are so good. They don't taste or feel like roasted peanuts at all but more like a crunchy bean. These are great just to snack on or toss them into salads or cook them with rice.
It's a little labor intensive since the peanuts have to be shelled but you can delegate this task to your kids…


Boiled Peanuts Recipe:
2 pounds of raw peanuts in the shell resulted in about 5 cups shelled with skin on
3 cups water
1/2 cup soy sauce
4-5 star anise

bring to a boil, lower heat to a simmer, cover and cook for about 20-30 minutes or until tender but still crunchy, strain, cool and keep refrigerated and enjoy it chilled
