Kacang Bogor - Bogor Peanuts

I bought some of these the other day.....
Kacang Bogor (Bogor Peanuts)
Vigna subterranea (L) Verdc.

Bogor is a city about 1 hour outside Jakarta
and for some reason it rains a lot there, thus the name "The Rainy City"

These Bogor peanuts are sold in supermarkets rarely, they're mostly sold by street vendors in carts like this

They're round in shape
usually boiled or steamed
& they break open easily.........

revealing the purple-candy-like nuts
aren't they just gorgeous ???

mmmmmm :)

they taste kinda like peanuts....
but they're just perfect on your plate, right ? :)
