Boiled Peanuts
Judging from the many variations on recipes for boiled peanuts, there appears to be no wrong way to boil green peanuts.  The important thing is the many tastings needed to determine when they are done.  You must taste test the boiled peanuts for saltiness and firmness, as some people prefer soft nuts to firmer ones.

Dried Fruit, Nut, and Seed Crisps
I love crackers with nuts and dried fruits in them.  They are expensive to purchase, but very inexpensive to make.  These easy-to-make crackers require no rolling out as other recipe do.  The crisps are twice-baked like biscotti and thinly sliced. They are excellent served with some cheese and wine, and they are so addictive!

white bowl full of Dukkah

Dukkah (nuts, seeds, and spice dip)
Dukkah is a delicious blend of nuts, seeds, and spices.  It is based on a traditional Middle Eastern recipe.  I first discovered this great mixture while on vacation in Western Australia (WA).  It has become a popular seasoning in Australia and can easily be purchased there, but why buy it when you can easily make your own.  The traditional way to serve Dukkah is with extra-virgin oil and bread.  First you dunk a piece of bread in the olive oil and then in the Dukkah.  I served this at a large wine tasting party, and it was a big hit!
