The Soustons peanut, produced by the Darrigade farm is available on the farm’s website. At the moment, only the Delest family produces Soustons peanuts, proposing them in many different forms, particularly by revisiting a monument of gastronomy in the south west of France: the hearty Cassoulet stew. Its name? The Cassouhuète.
There is only one place in France that is capable of producing peanuts: the Landes. With its sandy soil that easily drains away water, the Landes provides the peanut optimal conditions in which to grow. The various elements in the soil in the Landes is what makes the peanuts from this area so distinctive, that is, with a slightly sugary taste.
