    and the harvest has about ended...so...you have a good chance of finding fresh
    peanuts in the grocery, not the year old stuff...

    Here ya go folks...
    The shrimp are come too...janeeng.

    Boiled Peanuts.

    The best results will be with fresh peanuts. Old nuts take forever to cook and in the end do not taste as good. Fresh peanuts (depending on the amount, about 1 lb.) will cook in about 1 ½ - 2hrs.
    The grocery usually has them in bulk this time of year. They should feel somewhat moist and smell like dirt. Bag at least 1 lb. in one of those clear vegetable bags.

    *Plan on cooking them within a day or two of purchase. Remove them from the plastic bag when you get home. If you do not they will mold very fast.


    1. In a large dark pot cover with water, add salt, about ½ cup per pound. Bring to a medium boil for 1hr.

    2. Check for doneness, taste one or two (the peanut should be soft but not mushy and slightly salty) add salt and water if necessary (keep em covered with water). You can add additional salt anytime.

    Notes:

    1. If you use an aluminum pot cooking time will increase.
    2. When done, scoop out what you want and leave the rest in the brine.
    3. Best when eaten hot/warm.
    4. Break the shell down the seam with your teeth AND SUCK THAT JUICE!

    Let me know how they come out...
