237|365 Oh Peanuts! (8/29/11)

In Madill, Oklahoma, the nearest city to our place at Lake Texoma is the Texoma Peanut Inn, the retail outlet for Texoma Peanut Company.  Their specialty is, as you might guess, peanuts.  They stock other ‘made in Oklahoma’ products such as jellies and salsa.  It’s a special treat to stop there and get some freshly roasted peanuts or the honey roasted peanuts. Right now we have a big bag of their peanuts on our kitchen counter and it’s hard to resist cracking a few shells and eating some.

Oklahoma & Texas mainly grow spanish-type peanuts, which have a smaller kernal and have a reddish-brown skin.  This type of peanut has a higher oil content than other types of peanuts, which makes it good for crushing for the oil.
