When boiling peanuts should I add more water and salt as the water evaporates?
When boiling raw peanuts the brine has a tendency to evaporate off.
My question is when you add more water to the pot do you need to add more salt or do you just keep adding water so the brine becomes diluted to the point of turning into fresh water boiling?
I have been boiling my raw peanuts for 24 hours and they are still firm but getting soft finally and taste pretty good. I so far have been putting in a half gallon of water and 2oz of salt every time that amount of water evaporates off. I started my brine with 10oz of salt per gallon of water.
Not bad so far!
