Boiled Peanuts

No recipe image available."I bought a can of boiled peanuts the first time I was ever in Tennessee. They are really different and I guess you have to acquire a taste for them, but we liked them instantly." - Submitted by Dee Sherry

Recipe Ingredients:

5 pounds green peanuts in their shells
1 cup kosher salt
5 quarts water

Cooking Directions:

  1. Wash the peanuts in at least three exchanges of water.
  2. Bring the water and salt to a boil in a large pot.
  3. Add nuts.
  4. Boil for 45 minutes or to desired doneness, firm to mushy.
  5. Turn off heat. Let cool in the water, this allows nut to absorb the salt.
  6. Can be frozen and later dropped into boiling salt water and served warm.

Makes 5 pounds.
