Very nice recipe, thanks. I did make some mods: 1. Soak the raw peanuts over night in a large pot with a plate holding the peanuts under unsalted water (they tend to float). 2. I used 1/3 cup salt instead of 1/2 cup (for me 1/2 cup was too salty the first time I did this). 3. I had to cook mine about 14 hrs. on the High setting. Then turn the Crock Pot off before going to bed but let the peanuts sit in the brine until morning. Next day they are perfect. At least 2 days to cook 'em!
