History and Facts:
Botanically, peanuts are truly peas which look like nuts. Peanuts may be purchased green, roasted in the shell, shelled, or boiled.
Peanuts are a good source of protein, niacin, and potassium, and can be used as meat alternates.
Shelled peanuts, packed in cans or in the proper film bags, can be stored up to 2 years. Unshelled nuts can only be stored for about six months.
