Many years back when we first visited our native village back in China, my brothers and I discovered a small stall near the hotel selling local dishes and snacks.
This sweet peanut soup was one of them, I remembered going back for more everyday during our stay. It was just incredibly delicious, unforgettable taste even after so many years...
2 cups/300 gm of white long peanuts
100-150 gm rock sugar（or to taste）
12 cups of water
2 cups/300 克 去皮白肉花生
100-150克 冰糖 （或适量）
1. Bring a big pot of water to boil, soaked the peanuts in hot water for 1-2 hours, if the peanuts you bought is with skins, the skins could be easily removed after soaking.
2. Wash the peanuts and place it in a heavy bottom cookware with 10 cups of water, bring to boil and turn heat to medium low, simmer for 3-5 hours or until peanuts become soft. Sweeten with rock sugar before serving.
Note：To save time, use a pressure cooker to cook the soaked peanut for 8 minutes after first whistle. And pour it into heavy bottom cookware with HOT WATER to continue cooking for 1-2 hours.
DO NOT over cook it in pressure cooker as the soup may become greasy.
Yummy and healthy Sweet peanut soup... good for cold fall weather!
