Halacha - peanuts on peasach
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: Peanuts are generally considered kitniyos because they are really a legume (bean) noit a nut. However, some Poskim are of the opinion that since peanuts are native to the American continent and were not included in the original chumra of kitniyos that was taken on in the 1300's, that they are permitted. Furthermore, there is a difference of opinion among the Poskim if oil derived from kitniyos is included in the minhag. Due to the combination of these two factors, some permit peanut oil for Pesach. However, the mainstream Ashkenazi minhag is not to use peanut oil.
