The joy of eating unshelled peanuts

During those days when we sat in our portico enjoying roasted unshelled peanuts brings back memories.

We were quite a brood eight in all and mother used to buy roasted peanuts and give all of us some.  We would all sit out there and enjoy them chatting and having fun.

Then there was this most exciting activity which involved selling our books after we got our results and with that money we would buy peanuts and other ingredients to prepare what we call here chikki.  The joy to see its success was just another happy memory.

That time we only knew the fun part of it. It is only now thanks to the Internet that I have learnt of the health properties of peanuts.

No time for unshelled peanuts but I have them in different forms.  We get the unsalted peeled peanuts and the crunchy peanut butter. Very rarely do I boil the unshelled peanuts – they taste great too.

I have been writing for various sites some of which have disappeared.  I have several interests including writing, photography, gardening, reaching out, cooking.  I have a blog which needs a bit of revamping and when I get some time I will go there and do justice.

I love people and have been responsible for getting together several groups such as class mates, seniors, orphaned kids and family
