A Stack of Tomato Sandwiches, Boiled Peanuts & White Burgundy

Talking Boiled Peanut History with Rachel Belle

By Robert F. Moss


This September was all about boiled peanuts and barbecue.

The September 26th episode of Your Last Meal with Rachel Belle featured Iron & Wine (a.k. NC-based singer-song writer Sam Beam.) One of Sam’s picks for his last meal was boiled peanuts, and Rachel interviewed me about their history. Check it out on Stitcher or Apple Podcasts or wherever you download your audio.
