Recipe

Boiled Peanuts

Traditional Southern hot boiled peanuts. Raw peanuts boiled in salt water for a salty, shell-shucking-worthy snack.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound raw "green" peanuts (not the color green, but fresh raw peanuts which are called green peanuts)
  • 1/4 cup (35g) kosher salt, preferably Diamond Crystal (or 2 tablespoons table salt)
  • 4 cups water

Optional seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning, smoked paprika, shrimp boil mix, or even star anise

Directions

  • Rinse the peanuts: Thoroughly rinse raw unshelled peanuts in water
  • Put water, salt, seasoning, & peanuts in a large stockpot, bring to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat just enough to maintain a low boil. Boil for 2 to 3 hours or longer, until peanuts reach desired level of softness.
  • Drain and eat up within a couple of days
