Boiled peanuts are part of my heritage (Mom from Georgia, I lived in
Virginia a good part of my life), and I love them.  To put the query about
how they are cooked and eaten to rest...yes, they are boiled in the shell in
salty water.  To do it successfully, they must have just been harvested.
Once boiled they can be eaten right away (as soon as they cool) or canned.
I've had them both ways.  To eat them, you do shell them, as Master A said,
in much the same manner as edamame beans.  I don't know what they sell where
you guys are, but if you can ever get hold of some that have just been
boiled, you might change your opinion.  Finally, as I indicated above, I'm
not sure just having raw peanuts will work...they have been dried.  I
believe they have to be freshly harvested.
