Product review: Texoma Peanuts
The UPS man came by today. He delivered 10lbs of peanuts. Not just any peanuts, but peanuts from the Texoma Peanut Inn.
The Texoma Peanut Inn is a cult figure for the members of The BBQ-Brethren. Now, I can't tell you why they have achieved their legendary status with the Brethren, but I can tell you it's well deserved.
Last year someone "nutted" me and sent me a 5lb bag of Texoma's jalapeno flavored in shell nuts. They were spicy, salty and fresh. They were eaten in a couple of days. Today, I received another 5lb bag of jalapeno nuts and a 5lb bag of Cajun flavored in shell nuts. I'm in heaven. These nuts are easiest the best I've ever eaten. Oddly, the Cajun nuts are nowhere near as spicy as the jalapeno flavored nuts. Their flavor is much more complex with just a hint of maple!?! These things would make great gifts.
I'm thinking about trying the peanut brittle recipe Matt, from The Hampton Smoker, posted recently on his blog. I think the heat of the nuts combined with the sweetness of the brittle would make a great combination.
