This is how boiled peanuts are traditionally prepared in Hawaii. It's a little different from the Southern style.
- Wash peanuts until water is clear. Add water to cover peanuts and soak overnight. Put weight on so that peanuts are soaking.
- Drain and rinse several times until water is clean.
- Add star anise; cover and boil for 30 to 45 minutes, testing to see that peanuts are cooked, but not soft. Do not overcook. Turn off heat, add salt and mix.
- Cover and let stand for approximately 30 to 45 minutes.
