This is a great Southern recipe. It can be used with a crockpot or a regular pot. Get a bag of peanuts and some cajun seasoning. Put peanuts in crockpot/pot cover with water. Add a lot of season. The more the better. Cover and Boil and then reduce to low. Cook on low for a minumum of 12 hours. The peanuts should be soft. They can stay cooking on low for up to 3 days. Enjoy.

Does this need the fresh, raw peanuts?

My dh makes a chinese version of boiled peanuts. It's with fresh, young peanuts. Boil them with soy sauce, a few star anise or a little 5 spice powder and some salt. They are pretty addictive. Like a bag a potato chips.

No don't use the raw. I tried them once and they did not come out good at all. Just use regular unsalted peanuts in a bag.

Tried this recently in my crockpot with a bag of frozen peanuts and smoked turkey wings for flavor. Another southern recipe :) This is more of an entree though with the turkey wings

These are peanuts with or without the shell?
