What's the verdict on these? I think a lot of nut aficionados scoff at them.

Personally, I love 'em. Just on their own though, they suck with beer.

you should've raided my car when i was in new orleans.

I had honey roasted, spanish, cajun mix, peanut brittle, sugared pecans, pistachios, and more from the peanut shop for my dad's christmas present...

Great thing about New York... there's loads of street vendors with candied peanuts, cashews, coconut chunks, and another variety that I don't remember. About two bones a bag and freshly candied and delicious.

Emerald Nuts is a really great brand, by the way. They have some kinda sweet walnuts that are great.

Is that nuts store still on Main with the old Peanut man clicking the window/nickel with his cane?

Anyway, does anyone know what I talking about with the non-shiny candied pecans? They have that dusty look like with honey peanuts--I wanna make those. GREAT on salads with stilton cheese and apples, with a nice pomegranate vinaigrette.

K -- that's the photos I just posted, of the downtown Peanut Shop. there's also a location on Summer Ave near Pop Tunes... they have the candied pecans, but I dunno the recipe.

you can make a simple candied pecan (or cashew or whatever)

in a skillet to taste:
butter (more the better in my opinion)
sugar
salt
then stir the nuts continuously until they are well coated.
don't over cook or the sugar will burn

spread on wax paper to dry.


PEANUT SHOP! I'm gonna miss that when I leave the downtown job! sniff

Try making some GORP with honey roasted peanuts. Man, that's good stuff.
