Peanuts belong to the legume family and are also known by the names of groundnut, goobers and monkey nut. The crop was domesticated thousands of years ago in South America, but now is sold across the globe in the forms of roasted or boiled nuts, oil, butter or even peanut flour. In this episode, I chat with James Beard award-winning chef, Steven Satterfield, about his recent book on peanuts!
