Boiled Groundnuts

Dad used to tell stories of how getting a newspaper cone filled with a mound of steaming hot groundnuts were a childhood treat. Rare these days, sometimes if you're really lucky you can find them at a nightmarket or fair. They're super simple to make at home but I'll admit that nothing beats popping them in your mouth as you walk down the street.

* Make sure you scrub the dirt off the groundnuts well or you'll end up with sandy tasting groundnuts.
* Get groundnuts with the shells still on them as without them you won't get that lovely silky texture that comes from the nuts being " pressure steamed" in the shell.
