Peanut hérebé – Boiled salty peanuts

door Linda Terrizzi

The peanut herebe is another real Antillean favorite: delicious, boiled salty peanuts! You can find them everywhere in the Antilles .. and they are also so tasty .. really different from the roasted version.

They are perhaps most reminiscent of olives, because they are pickled in much the same way.

Recipe from our book

This recipe can also be found in our cookbook 'The complete Antillean kitchen'. Did you know that there are no less than 300 (!) recipes in that book from the kitchen of Aruba, Bonaire en Curaçao?

It is the result of 7 years of research and we now finally dare to say that we have really “captured” Antillean cuisine in its entirety. Click on the image below to learn more about the book:

The peanuts are quite salty… so don't forget to have a nice glass of Antillean lime syrup (“awa di lamunchi”) to include!

Be careful with raw peanuts!

Many of you have known this for a long time, but… raw peanuts are poisonous! For that reason you will hardly find them in 'normal' shops or on the market. It can be quite a quest to get real, raw peanuts.

We already have one address for you: at the large Chinese supermarket 'Amazing Oriental' you can buy them on the spot (in the various branches) or online.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound RAW shelled peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons of salt
  • 1 liters of water
  • *optional: a spice mix of your choice to give the peanuts extra taste



PREPARATION PEANUT HEREBE:

Wash the unpeeled peanuts in cold water. (Tip: To reduce cooking time, soak dried raw peanuts in cold water overnight first!)

Place peanuts, water and salt in a large saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. (If you want to add a spice mix, put it in the water too) Watch the water carefully during cooking; if the peanuts start to boil dry, add more water.

Let the peanuts cook for several hours. The cooking time strongly depends on the freshness of the peanuts: with fresh peanuts (that have just come out of the ground) two hours is enough.

Dried raw peanuts take between 4 and 6 hours. It is therefore necessary that you always test a peanut in the meantime to see whether it is already 'good'.

Drain the water, let the peanuts cool and enjoy!

*Tip: If you cook the peanuts in a pressure cooker, you may divide the cooking time by 3!
