    Shawn C's Note:

    A wonderful southern tradition--and obviously and acquired taste! Don't want it so hot?- replace pepper and Cajun seasonings and jalapeños with some ham hocks and have them country style.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 lbs raw peanuts, in the shell (green)
    • 4 tablespoons cajun seasoning (I get the blackening seasoning from Sam's wholesale)
    • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    • 4 tablespoons salt (heaping)
    • 5 fresh jalapenos, seeded and sliced thick

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In large steel stock pot (for outside use) place peanuts and fill with water 3/4 full.
    2. 2
      Add all but the jalapeños.
    3. 3
      Place on gas burner and heat until boiling.
    4. 4
      Boil at a steady boil for about 6 hours, adding water as needed to keep pot at least half full.
    5. 5
      Stir occasionally.
    6. 6
      During last 2 hours add jalapeños.
    7. 7
      Taste at the end of the 6 hours for doneness. They should be completely soft and the inside of the shells are completely "wet" looking--no white remains visible.
    8. 8
      Eat hot or cold!
    9. 9
      They are great!
    10. 10
      Freeze some for later--just heat in microwave to enjoy that fresh out of pot taste again!

      I recently moved to FL and became hooked on these. Instead of paying three bucks for a cup full, I decided to try this recipe. Fabulous! I ended up using my crock pot and adding garlic. Thank for sharing this and God Bless.
