Default Boiled peanuts!

Two of my friends from Alabama sent me a box of green peanuts this week, with a recipe for making boiled peanuts!

I started them Saturday night, them let them go all night in the crockpot. Perfect for sitting out in the sunshine on Sunday afternoon, listening to the football game with neighbors, with a few brews!


Boiled Peanuts

Place green peanuts in a large stock pot, and add water to cover. Place a plate over the floating peanuts, to hold them down under the water.

Bring to a rolling boil and boil for 1 hour. Scoop the peanuts out with a slotted spoon into a colander. Rinse peanuts.

Place peanuts into a crockpot (or stockpot) and measure water to cover (I needed just 1/2 gallon of water).

For each gallon, add 1/4 cup salt and 1/4 cup Tony Cachere's seasoning. Put crock on low for 8 hours (or simmer on top of stove for 7-8 hours) until the nuts within the shells are very soft, like baked beans.

Break open shells, slurp brine along with the soft peanuts.

Good to eat warm or cold. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers.
