Boiled Peanut Time
This was early September and I got me a bunch of boiled peanuts at Lowry's Farm in Brownsdale. I wanted to get some more to bring back to NJ but I missed my chance. This batch was a 'younger' (less mature) harvest and the peanuts at this stage are best for boiling. The ones I got (already boiled) were from an older crop that were processed a few days before. The lady in the green blouse is Mrs.Lowry. They are culling out the bad peanuts as they come off the washer/ conveyor which is fed from the unloading hopper in the background.
