Looking for raw peanuts to make boiled peanuts. I can only find roasted but not raw.
Know of any place they sell raw peanuts?

Boiled peanuts are popular in some places where peanuts are common. Fully mature peanuts do not make good quality boiled peanuts; rather raw or "green" ones are used. "Raw" denotes peanuts in a semi-mature state, having achieved full size, but not being fully dried...

I have neverseen them Lakeside although I had peanuts grwong in the garden and the gardener told me they used to grown them on the lake bed because the soil was right for them.
In states where thy grown peanuts you can buy them at the market or can buy boiled peanuts from the street vendors.

Raw green peanuts in the shell are not likely to be found at Lakeside.

There are guys selling boiled peanuts at the local futbol games so they must be getting them from somewhere local. Go ask one of them.

I have bought boiled peanuts from vendors on the west end of the periferico. There is a guy in Ajijic who has a peanut cart and he would probably know. I see more people selling fresh chick peas.

Nope, they are peanuts as verified by "a good ole boy" from the southern US who was also at the games.

They sell beans in peanut shells?
Maybe you're thinking of garbanzos?

Yes, they are and the nut is mushy and horrible. I don't see how people like these things but apparently they are a big deal in the southern US.

They are good,when we visit my in-laws in Guanajuato we usually pick a bunch of garbanzos and grill or boil them,the owners of the fields are usually out there with a hand scale.

Yes they are big in the south, but if they are mushy, they have been cooked too long. Should be soft but not mushy.

I would probably agree with you for what you are getting. The peanut must be dug before it is mature (green), must be the correct type (valencia), and must not be allowed to dry. It is like taking a mature cactus pad and cooking it. It will be awful, but it was still boiled cactus.
