Bar Bites: Sea Salt and Vinegar Peanuts

Photographs: Marvin Gapultos

Peanuts are a natural when it comes to beer-friendly snacks, as are salt and vinegar potato chips. This is an easy recipe that combines the two snacks into one.

Raw peanuts are soaked in apple cider vinegar, drained, then dried. The vinegar-infused peanuts are then fried in a bit of oil until golden, then given a heavy dose of fine sea salt. Some chopped parsley adds some color and freshness, while a final sprinkle of vinegar brings additional tang. When served warm, these salty/sour peanuts are sure to pique your thirst for a cold beer.
