About

Actually a legume not a nut, Raw Valencia Peanuts make for one way popular sprout! We got thousands of folks hooked on these over our years at the Dane County Farmer's Market in Madison, Wisconsin (where we sold sprouts every Saturday from April-November for 10 years). In our opinion, Peanuts are best when they put out only a bulge at their tip (germ), not a big root, but you can decide for yourself (assuming that you can keep from eating them long enough to let them grow).

Flavor
So buttery, so sweet, by the handful.

Notes

The future of organic peanuts is seriously in doubt.  The main supplier of organic valencia peanuts has shut down due to the FDA's heavy handed treatment.  Do some web searches to educate yourself, but keep in mind that we are talking about agriculture here.  Our food is grown in soil.  In nature.  We want real food!  Organic food!  If the FDA had its way we would all eat food so processed, so cooked, that there would be no nutrition in it - but then we'd all need drugs - which would be wonderful to them and their drug company buddies.  Take a look at who runs the FDA .


Read about the organic peanut situation here  and pray for the family farmers who are suffering needlessly. We do not know if this situation has been completely resolved, but it has been to some degree.  After Sunland went bankrupt their facility was sold to a Canadian company whose plan is to take the equipment away and never re-open that plant.  Fortunately another facility has taken over, and though they are smaller they have gotten things moving - so we once again have Peanuts!  Not only that, but these are  the best we've seen in years.  They germinate within a day or two and are are absolutely DElicious!  So now we can sell straight Peanuts as well as our San Francisco Mix  and Madison Market Mix  - which both include Peanuts.

Seed Shelf Life: 1 year. Store in cool, dark, dry spot. Store in freezer to extend shelf life.

  • Filling snack
    These sprouts are really great! They are ready fast and they taste great. Similar taste to a regular peanut, but fresher and lighter. I like that they are really filling, so they are a great snack. My daughter eats them at swim meets when she doesn't want to eat too much at once cuz she'll be back in the pool soon, but wants a healthy sustaining snack to fuel her body. One of my faves!

  • Yummy peanut sprouts
    My husband and I just love peanut sprouts. We eat them as a snack all by themselves, and also have tried them in a salad, beef stew, and chicken stir-fry. They are crunchy and taste terrific. BTW, I like to add some sea salt to the soak water. They still sprout, and they taste even better.
