BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

For this week's Absolutely Alabama, Fred Hunter visits the Peanut Depot, which has been selling roasted peanuts at the same location on Morris Avenue for over 100 years - 106 to be exact.

It's a perfect trip as spring arrives and baseball season is almost upon us. Fred, a self-desribed Big Old Nut, meets some colorful characters like Ms. Peanut and roast master Harrison Simmons, and shows us why this historic site is Absolutely Alabama.

Fore more information about the Peanut Depot and how you can get some nuts of your own, please visit peanutdepot.com.
