Crock Pot Boiled Peanuts

Yes, you can make boiled peanuts in a crock pot. The process is the same as boiling peanuts in a pot on the stove.

The time may vary between the two methods, and will vary with the type of peanuts you boil. Dried raw peanuts will probably take 20 hours or more to soften to your liking when boiled in a crock pot.

Salt makes dried peanuts and other dried legumes take longer to soften when boiling, so we suggest you boil them in plain water until they begin to reach the texture that you like. Add fresh water to the crock pot as needed.

"Taste them early, taste them often" is our motto for boiling peanuts to the best texture.

After the boiled peanuts are almost as soft as you like, add salt to the crock pot. We suggest about 1 tablespoon salt per pint of water.

Continue heating the peanuts in the salt water so they absorb the salt water. This will take more than an hour, to taste. Taste samples at least every 30 minutes until they are done to your liking.

Let the boiled peanuts soak in the brine as they cool if you want to fill the shells with more salty goodness. Refrigerate them overnight in the brine for maximum juicy flavor.
