Peanuts aren't Nuts! May 14th, 2015

They are actually a legume, similar to a bean, and are a major source of fat and protein for Malawians. Boiled, roasted or pounded into flour, there's no end to what people can do with them. Here they are called "ground nuts" because, while they grow much like beans, they spread underground and have to be dug up before being dried in the sun, then bagged to last throughout the year. Lucky for me I walked right into ground nut season! :) B
