DIRECTIONS

  • In large steel stock pot (for outside use) place peanuts and fill with water 3/4 full.
  • Add all but the jalapeños.
  • Place on gas burner and heat until boiling.
  • Boil at a steady boil for about 6 hours, adding water as needed to keep pot at least half full.
  • Stir occasionally.
  • During last 2 hours add jalapeños.
  • 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.
  • Eat hot or cold!
  • They are great!
  • Freeze some for later--just heat in microwave to enjoy that fresh out of pot taste again!
