S1 Ep.9: Peanut Pastime

Vivian visits neighbor Marty Harper's peanut farm just before & during harvest. Vivian’s dad introduces Ben & Vivian to an old school snack-break, a pack of salted peanuts dumped into a glass Pepsi bottle. At the restaurant, Vivian translates the snack into Pepsi glazed pork belly with country ham braised peanuts. Vivian reinvents, the popular Southern snack, boiled peanuts for the local farmer's market.
