I have been making boiled peanuts like the ones I get at the boathouses in FL. I was told to use raw peanuts, which is hard to find in Ohio. On my last trip to Florida, they told me to use regular peanuts. I did and they turned out fine. I also tried it with dry roasted peanuts and it did not work.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs peanuts
  • 12 cup cajun spices
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced (optional)


  1. Wash and soak peanuts overnight.
  2. Place in crockpot and fill with water and add spices.
  3. Cook for 24 hours.

Great flavor! I used 1 lb. peanuts and made homemade Cajun seasoning. My kids couldn't keep their hands off of them!
