Boiled Peanuts

READY IN: 48hrs
Recipe by MelinOhio

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.
