      My husband loves boiled peanuts! This recipe is similar to one I use regularly. However, for our tastes, the cooking time and water content is way off. The longer you simmer the better so the peanuts have a chance to soak up the flavor the of brine and soften. Usually, depending on the peanuts, I will let them simmer about 10 hours, then turn them off and allow to sit in the brine for another 3 hours or so. As for the water, use enough to cover the peanuts and then some. I always make plenty to have on hand and keep some also in the freezer. Boiled peanuts are definitely an acquired taste. We do love them!

      We loved the proportions but the cooking time seemed way off. We boiled the peanuts for almost 3 hours. The nuts inside were "almost" the right texture but the shells were still too firm. We then drained them and put them in fresh water in a crock pot on high for another 8 hours and they came out PERFECT.
