As if being the perfect portable snack weren't enough, one of Georgia's most famous exports reveals a little-known talent at picnic time: Peanuts can cushion delicate items such as peaches (speaking of Georgia), sandwiches, and glass bottles (or Champagne flutes, if you're getting fancy). And when their work is done, the peanuts make a tasty addition to the meal.

Please remember that many people are anaphylactic to peanuts which is a very serious allergic response which can lead to death.

Love this idea! Living in Virginia, I send VA themed gift baskets to out of state friends and relatives for Christmas, etc. This is a peanut state, and using roasted suffolk peanuts is a FAB way to cushion the bottles of VA wine and shine! Thanks for another great idea, Team Stewart!
