Extra Large Virginia Peanuts, Peanut Oil, Salt

Gluten Free



The peanut, a native legume from South America, became an important Virginia cash crop in the late 1800s. George Washington Carver, the famous Afro-American scientist, convinced many of the regions’ farmers to plant the versatile peanut in place of cotton, which had been devistated by the boll weevil. Southeast Virginia became famous as the only region in America where the large Virginia-type peanut was prepared in the ‘homestyle’ tradition. Many peanut farming families developed their own secret recipe for these delicious, crunchy peanuts that they served at special social functions. This homegrown specialty became so popular in the 50’s that several companies began selling them locally and through mail order catalogs. We are proud to offer our “homestyle” Virginia peanuts, still prepared by hand, using these time honored recipes.

    Purely American are quite simply so good that I order them by the case two or three times a year rather than buy other brands in local stores. They're plumper, crisper, more flavorful and ideally salted; they're reliable and consistent; and they rely on no additives. I'm a fan.
