A horse of a different color

Did you know peanuts came in different colors?  I sure didn't, so imagine my suprise when we found this inside our peanut shell:

  3. Are these also roasted and salted? That's the only way I like my peanuts. Or turned into peanut butter. Or crushed and sprinkled on a spicy noodle dish...

  4. We ate them; they tasted just like normal peanuts, not steamed (a whole different experience all together).

    Brett - yes, same ones we had with the tea... and no, haven't learned "peanut", but did learn and use "fruit"!
