Eating the Past: Georgia's boiled peanuts

Boiled peanuts in soft shells.

On this episode of Eating the Past, host Jamie Sanders explores the history of peanuts in Georgia and the American South.

Jamie Sanders is a historian of Latin America at Utah State and his family’s cook. He grew up in the rural South and loves its regional cuisine, but a study abroad trip to the Yucatán when he was a teenager really awakened him to international food culture.
