• Groundnuts

Nuts, all forms of nuts are a staple in my home! We enjoy them in all forms and all types. These groundnuts are one of our Zimbabwean traditional snacks. They can be shelled then roasted or just boiled in their shells then shell and eat on the go! There’s not much to the preparation, just a lot of patience required, waiting on them to get cooked!
